man (1) pkg_info

It does not list any package that depends on it. I have no idea why it
is being installed.

Well, it's not magic. Ports only get installed by one of two ways; you deliberately install them or they get installed as dependencies. If you didn't deliberately install a port, then it must be a dependency of something. If it doesn't list any, then it's possible your pkgdb is inaccurate. Run % pkgdb -F to correct any incorrect or missing dependencies.

What port is it?
