Yes, there is a simpler way.

	make rmconfig

You can recursively remote the stored configuration of the current port
and *all* its dependencies too, by using:

	make rmconfig-recursive

The `rmconfig' target should be documented already in your `ports'
manpage.  If you don't see it described in the output of `man ports',
then it's a documentation bug.  In that case, let us know, so we can
fix the manpage :)
