Remove all packages that require (depend on) the given package.
This can be used to remove any packages that may have been pulled in
by a given package, e.g. if "make deinstall DEINSTALLDEPENDS=1" is
done in x11/kde, this is likely to remove whole KDE. Works by adding
a "-R" to the pkg_delete command line.
If we have Packages A and B, such that
Will pkg_delete A remove: ACDE ? (Leaving B broken), or AC ? (making a
rebuild of A require manual
intervention - because of
version reqs, or say, ELF.)
