I like the difference. Maybe because I also like 'pkg_tree -v' and
'pkg_tree -t -q' and the dependency graph tool from Garrett Wollman (at
http://people.freebsd.org/~wollman/portdeps.pl) together with graphviz.
It generates output like http://lambermont.dyndns.org/freebsd/ports.png
(my setup) where the root ports are the upper-left boxes and the leaf
ports are the right-side boxes. Ports that are depended on are ellipses.
