It's not about building from ports, it's about using the ports tree to
infer the runtime dependencies. You would recurse through "make
run-depends-list" doing  a make -V PKGNAME in each directory. If you
don't mind downloading some build dependencies you can just do a "make
all-depends-list", which is already recursive.

If you use the release port tree and the release package repository,
the package versions will all match-up.
