Thanks Ruben, portupgrade contained a lot more tools that I wasn't aware
of. In the end, I ripped everything out and started afresh.

I recently tried to install vim from the ports collections, however I
didn't do it with 'WITHOUT_X11', and accordingly it went off and
installed X + presumably a whole load of dependencies which I really
don't want. Is there any way to get a list of exactly what it added so
that I can go and remove it cleanly?
the command "pkg_deinstall -nR vim" (this command is port of the portupgrade
package) will give you a list of all packages vim depends on. Removing the 'n'
switch will actually upward-recursively deinstall these packages, excluding
the ones that are needed by other packages.
Then rebuild vim WITHOUT_X11 ;)
I do have another query though; pkg_cutleaves is supposed to show you a
list of of packages upon which nothing depends. In theory this means
that there should be nothing in this list beyond the ports I've
explicitly installed. However, I do seem to have gained autoconf,
automake, gmake, help2man and libtool. Am I right in thinking that
these were required for building / installing something at some point,
but that nothing would break if I were to remove them?
