As Eric already said, the package package target will do that for you.

If you wanted to install dependencies from binary packages, you would
set DEPENDS_TARGET to bin-install.

lothar:.../pkgsrc/mail/spamassassin$ make print-run-depends-list
This package requires package(s) "p5-Digest-HMAC>=1.0
p5-Digest-MD5>=2.00 p5-Digest-MD5>=2.12 p5-Digest-SHA1-[0-9]*
p5-Digest-SHA1>=1.00 p5-Digest>=1.00 p5-HTML-Parser>=3.29
p5-HTML-Tagset>=3.0 p5-IO-Socket-SSL>=0.92 p5-MIME-Base64>=2.11
p5-Net-DNS>=0.29 p5-Net-SSLeay-[0-9]* perl>=5.0 perl>=5.6.0" to run.

You can just use run-depends-list to get it in an easier-to-parse
format, but you'll have to weed out the duplicates.
