That is an interactive script that lets you delete all packages that
aren't required by other packages.  You still need some way to work
out what dependencies were installed by the first package.

You could try looking at "pkg_deinstall -R" (part of portupgrade).

BTW, if you compiled the package, it could have installed build-time
dependencies that aren't recorded as requirements and I don't know
any easy way to find/delete them.
