No, there's no such command. If you are looking for a way to 'deinstall
all ports & packages' though, it may be as easy as:
1. Remove all the currently installed ports:
# rm -fr /usr/local
# mkdir /usr/local && cd /usr/local
# mtree -deU < /etc/mtree/BSD.local.dist
2. Remove all the information about 'installed packages', because you
don't have any of these anymore:
# rm -fr /var/db/pkg/*
3. Optionally, if you are going to reconfigure all your ports from
scratch, remove the saved port configuration options:
# rm -fr /var/db/ports/*
