  New port: sysutils/pkg-orphan A console utility for managing unreferenced FreeBSD packages
          pkg-orphan is a console utility for managing orphan, i.e.
          unreferenced FreeBSD packages. It finds all or selected
          orphans and lets the user choose which ones to remove and
          which ones to keep. It maintains a keep-list file, so
          previously kept packages will be skipped automatically. In
          batch mode, all packages, not present in the keep-list are
          either deleted or kept in the list.
          Since orphan packages are usually much fewer than non-orphan
          ones, it can be useful for quickly finding and deleting
          unused packages, even on a system with hundreds of them
           - interactive and batch modes
           - maintains a kept package list, to avoid asking for the same package again
           - can delete packages recursively, but without deleting shared dependencies or
             previously kept packages
           - the keep-list file does not contain package versions, so upgrades generally
             don't require editing of the file
