Package Dependency Issue

New to FreeBSD, it seems that in each of a few vm's I stoke up when
I try to install openvpn-auth-ldap via `pkg_add -r` I expect as per
the man page for it to pull in all the deps it needs but it seems on
any given try, it misses something different?

I have tried searching the web to figure out how to look for a package
that provides a file I need when something is missing but I am lost.

On one try, I got:

Shared object "" not found, required by ""

and I couldn't find what provided this? I see cyrus-sasl2 provides a v2?

On another install it complained over a myriad of krb5 and tasn1 libs etc...

Any advice appreciated!
