Not quite, because it doesn't show which of the dependencies
I have already got installed, and which of those would need
to be updated.

Secondly, I would have needed to know it existed :)

Not a problem in this case.  The whole point is to find out what-all
I would be stuck with building in order to build one particular port
after updating the tree a few days ago.

Why not just rebuild everything?  Because I'm not willing to attempt
a rebuild of OpenOffice -- that was a collosal PITA the first time
-- nor the xorg migration; I figure those are better accomplished by
a clean install once the Mall's 7.0 CD set is ready.
