On debian it is done when building the packages - actually from the control
file. But you have only the package name and not exactly what is in the
package. This is in the various scripts for this package.

no forget this., however if you do dpkg -S it will tell you the package, but
again it is nonsense.
It must be doable from out of the code base.

I just wonder why would this be necessary, when there are man pages anyway.
Mostly people care what is the purpose of some software, not in which
package it is
