pkg delete --no-recursive

How to tell pkg delete to remove only *this* package and not all the
ones that depends on it.

There is a --recursive option, but it is applied by default and I don't
see how to disable it.

My goal is to remove perl5.14 in order to install perl5.20. All other
packages that depend on perl5.14 will be rebuild afterward, so the
dependecy will be updated accordingly.

But in no case I want to delete all packages depending on perl, I *do*
need them.

best regards,
