Your post, combined with new information, has raised a question.
Consider 'make build-depends-list' and 'make run-depends-list' for
$ make build-depends-list
$ make run-depends-list
The run-depends-list contains all of the information from LIB_DEPENDS and
RUN_DEPENDS. The build-depends-list includes all of BUILD_DEPENDS,
PATCH_DEPENDS, FETCH_DEPENDS, and EXTRACT_DEPENDS.
I am tempted to alter FreshPorts and abandon all *_DEPENDS and use just
run-depends-list and build-depends-list.
How much value is there is having all of this information separated into
