There is a nice utility in the AUR-Repository (aur/pacdep).

pacdep has a lot of options - just one example - find out optional packages for "thunar-archive-plugin":

> pacdep -oppp thunar-archive-plugin
[...]
Optional dependencies:    6.16 MiB
  extra/file-roller     3.89 MiB
  extra/kdeutils-ark    1.12 MiB
  community/xarchiver   1.16 MiB
[...]

The output above means that none of the optional packages are installed. After installing "xarchiver" the output looks like

[...]
Optional dependencies:    6.16 MiB
 local:    1.16 MiB
  xarchiver            1.16 MiB
 sync:     5.01 MiB
  extra/file-roller    3.89 MiB
  extra/kdeutils-ark   1.12 MiB
