Aside what Michael pointed out, ports-mgmt/pkg_cutleaves is much easier for 
this task. It will only delete leaves, so if b is still needed by X, it will 
not come up on the next iteration. And you get to see the short description 
of the package, so may decide to keep it anyway...

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
