hello again :)

here's my question/suggestion: i install port A which has a build only 
dependency on B; B has a run dependency on C. if i use --packages-build (--
delete-build-only as well), shouldn't C be installed from a package (deleted 
at the end, as well)? have a look at http://pastebin.ca/1718723 for an 
example: textproc/p5-XML-Parser should be pkg_added (and removed) imho
perhaps it's just too difficult to implement, or you don't have time... tell 
us if you need more funding. apparently, it shouldn't be a hard task...

thanks anyway for the work you've done so far, portmaster is performing 
greatly on my fresh 9-current! :)
