pkg and reverse dependencies

With pkg, how to see reverse dependencies of an installed package?

The old pkg_info command had an -R switch for this, but 'pkg info -R
<name>' does not do that (it does return lots of other useful info).

Asking specifically about php56-recode, which causes apache24 to dump
core every time it's upgraded. I don't think I need php56-recode, but
would like to check what's using it before uninstalling. This is on an
11.0-RELEASE amd64 system.
