Complete Port Removal Question

How can I remove a port and all of it's dependencies from a system? For example, I installed sqWebmail and tried it out then decided it's not what we were looking for. Now, I would like to not only remove sqWebmail but all of the stuff it installed along with it.

sqwebmail also installed things like:

- courier-authlib-base-0.56
- ispell-3.2.06_13

and others as well

Is there a safe / quick way to remove the dependencies for a port and not break the rest of the system by removing stuff other things depend on? For example, I don't want to remove Perl obviously which is a dependency of sqwebmail. 

Thank you,
