There is no such thing as /usr/ports/<port>, unless you meant
/usr/ports/<category>/<port> which i assume for this reply.

One is "make deinstall" will remove the port w/o care to any
dependencies.   Pkg_delete will remove a dependency-port only if you
specify via the -f (force) flag.  Both will notify you about any
dependencies in any case.

Personally, i use "make deinstall" only when the installed port
version is same as in /usr/ports/<category>/<port> AND happened to be
in that directory.  Otherwise, i just use pkg_de(install|delete).
