Well, I really mean the resulting pkg info from a port. A good example
is PHP, sometimes you have to say "everyone out of the pool" because of
cd /var/db/pkg && PKGS=`ls | egrep "^(php|pear|pecl)"`; for PKG in
$PKGS; do echo "---- $PKG"; pkg_delete "$PKG"; done;
Running that a few times until it stops picking things up, then its a
few commands to re-install PHP and its extensions (because of the
extensions roll-up port).
You can of course script it further, which is part of why I like FreeBSD
