I have several questions:
1. If I install a particular package, its dependencies will be
installed as well. Now if I remove it later using pkg_delete, only
that package will be removed and not the dependencies. The reason I
guess is because some other packages may be dependent on those
dependencies as well. Is there a way to remove a particular package
and all of its dependencies (given that no other package is dependent
on those dependencies)?
Is the pkg_cutleaves port what you're looking for?
If you build anything from ports, portmanager does a better job as it it takes
account of build dependencies.
portmaster has an -s switch that will remove ports no longer needed by
any other ports, so what you can do is say uninstall port A then run
portmaster -s and it will pick up any ports that port A required but
nothing else does and offer to remove them. it is an alternate to
portmanager, so you will not need both.
