    Have you looked for it in your Applications folder?

    Install Pacifist to extract the app from your Mac OS X install disk.

    It's a pretty well known application.

    Sorry, I haven't had the need for such a program so no motive to see if one existed. But, upon learning of the app, I like the following features:

    1) Includes the ability to verify existing intallations, comparing the files on your hard disk with the files listed in the package, and notifying you of missing files as well as files that have different permissions or checksums than those listed in the package.

    2) Pacifist is also able to scan through your receipts for kernel extensions, and compare them against the kernel extensions you have installed, so that you can see what kernel extensions in your System folder have been installed by third-party applications.
