Why would pkgfile say that glxinfo is in extra/mesa-demos when it isn’t?

% pkgfile glxinfo
% pac -Ql mesa-demos | grep info
mesa-demos /usr/bin/es2_info
mesa-demos /usr/bin/glinfo
mesa-demos /usr/bin/pbinfo

pacman -Fy glxinfo provides the answer:

extra/mesa-utils 8.4.0-6

and pkgfile does, too
after updating it’s database
sudo pkgfile -u

During update you may have also noticed:

upgraded mesa-demos (8.4.0-4 -> 8.4.0-6)
glxinfo, eglinfo and glxgears are now part of the new "mesa-utils" package.
