Package dependencies

Hi guys,

I know that the ports system that FreeBSD has takes care of dependencies,
but I'd like to write my own shell/perl script for finding out which
dependencies a package need. So I guess the 1 million dollar question is
"How do the ports programmer know what dependencies a package need?" that
is all :) thx guys.

Best Regards,

Andri Kok
