After removal of recursive dependencies in pkgsrc, pkg_info is no longer
able to print the whole dependency tree of a package.  This is often very
useful to know, especially when you are about to upgrade packages.
- run pkg_info on a package
- see it lists only direct dependencies
Add option to pkg_info to print recursive dependencies of a package.
