When I use `pkg_cutleaves -l` to list leaf nodes. It is listing things
I know are required by other apps. These aren't build dependencies.
For example, it lists g-wrap, and libpcap. If I remove g-wrap, my
gnucash2 immediately refuses to run. And I know libpcap was an "option"
I selected for NTop. There are others as well. I have noticed that a
`make pretty-print-run-depends-list` is empty for gnucash2. Is that
Why would these not be +REQUIRED_BY something? `pkgdb -F` doesn't
mention anything at all.
If something has no +REQUIRED_BY file... how can I go about determining
why its on my machine or which port installed it? Obviously top level
items I installed aside.
