tracking libraries that will be impacted by a port install/upgrade

Hi folks,

is there currently a mechanism in ports to ask a port what it will do
if installed?

I've been pondering a small set of build scripts that would allow one
to build a package on a remote non-identical machine and started
writing them, and hit a brick wall with trying to track what libraries
will be impacted. It's easy enough building packages if the machines
are identical, but once they're not then there are a whole host of
small libraries issues that can appear.
