The problem with this is that dependencies are actually recorded as a 
pair. For example:

@pkgdep pkg-config-0.25_1
@comment DEPORIGIN:devel/pkg-config

Someone else already was kind enough to mention 'portmaster 
--check-depends' which will prompt you to do the right thing and/or 
notify you about ports that you need to reinstall.
