I had a problem with my current x11-toolkits/gtk20
Solved with a crude:
pkg delete gtk2-2.24.28_1
cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20 ; make
but that zapped my system, deleting 330m meg of other presumably mostly
working stuff, a lot of stuff to wait to re-make & reinstall.
To debug any port, it would be nice if we had a make label
that would forcibly recursively re-install all dependencies Before
the main make, not just after install of main, as is done by my patch
for make reinstall-recursive
A shell or macro to make & install from list from `make build-depends`
Should I write it, or does it exist, can we throw a shell to do it ?
This did not achieve it:
In theory it shouldn't be necessary in a static well built ports/
but in a current moving target, while it appears all dependencies
are made & installed, it will have bits that have changed but are
