Just idle curiosity here...

If I run 'pkg_deinstall' on a port that another port depends on, it
will refuse to deinstall the port and tell me the name(s) of then ports
that depend
on the one I want to deinstall.

If I run 'pkg_deinstall -n' on that same port, it doesn't tell me
that it would refuse to desinstall.

For example, samba requires cups-base....

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]# pkg_deinstall -n cups-base
--->  Deinstalling 'cups-base-'
--->  Reporting the results (+:done / -:ignored / *:skipped / !:failed) 
+ cups-base-

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]# pkg_deinstall cups-base
--->  Deinstalling 'cups-base-'
pkg_delete: package 'cups-base-' is required by these other
Packages and may not be deinstalled:
** The following packages were not deinstalled (*:skipped / !:failed)
! cups-base-    (pkg_delete failed)

Is there a way to make "pkg_deinstall -n" stop lying?
