This is correct.

All the dependencies listed there are recursive build-dependencies. poptop
directly build-depends on gmake, which in turn depends on libiconv, gettext
and libtool15 and so on. None of these however are required for the binary
package of poptop.
For what it's worth, you don't really need to worry about the dependencies of
a package if you have access to the FreeBSD ftp mirrors anyway - pkg_add -r
will recursively fetch dependencies of any given package as required.
