Determining which port installed a build dependency

Is there a way to determine which port installed a build dependency?
I was using pkg_cutleaves to weed out some unused ports but I'd
prefer not to remove build dependencies if at all possible. Here is
an example of a build dependency which is not a run dependency:
% cd /usr/ports/net/cvsup
% make build-depends-list
% make run-depends-list
It is installed:
% pkg_info | grep ezm3
ezm3-1.1_1 Easier, more portable Modula-3 ...
If I try to find which port was responsible for installing ezm3
I get no results:
% pkg_info -R ezm3-1.1_1
Information for ezm3-1.1_1:
Is there some slick method for finding this information? I'd prefer
to keep the build dependencies for the next portupgrade.
The pkg_info(1) man page doesn't make it clear that the -R option
only works for run dependencies.
Searching with google didn't turn up any useful results either.
