Hello !

Take a look at the 'ports' manpage and you will find a mean on how to 
get useful information on the ports collection (configuring building 
discover dependencies etc..) :



*     fetch-list
		Show list of files to be fetched in order to build the port.

*     run-depends-list, build-depends-list
		      Print a list of all the compile and run dependencies, and 
dependencies of those dependencies, by port directory.
