I assume you mean removing all the config files? 
r0b at bsd:/usr/ports/<example-app> # make rmconfig-recursive
Can take care of "resetting" ports and dependencies.


# cp -Rp /usr/ports/distfiles /var/tmp 
(Backup to minimized downloading files) Not sure if its a good idea but I do it.
# rm -rf /usr/ports
# portsnap fetch
# portsnap extract
# portsnap update

NOTE! Please read the manual before doing anything I type. My job is to break
and play with my computer. I am also a newbie so please take caution
with my advice.
