Actually I was wrong, I just took a look at the stunnel pkg-deinstall script
and it does check whether BATCH is set before prompting. The problem is that
most people set BATCH via make, whereas pkg-deinstall is a shell script
invoked by pkg_delete.
portmanager, portupgrade and "make deinstall" all have this problem, and there
are several ports that behave like this. It would be nice if portmanager and
portupgrade could handle this by doing a "make -V BATCH" and checking their
respective configuration files before running pkg_delete, but I wouldn't hold
my breath. At the moment the solution is to export BATCH=yes from somewhere.
The problem is that that's global, and not per port.
