That's not an adequate test because something could have been installed 
as a build dependency previously, which means it could safely be deleted 
with --delete-build-only.

However, this is your lucky day! I looked at the problem and it wasn't 
as difficult as I first suspected. I've added code to the devel version 
of portmaster, can you test it? You can get the information on 
downloading it from svn at http://dougbarton.us/portmaster-proposal.html
