I have a machine that has installed all of the packages I want to 
install on another machine.  (To be precise, it's kde.)  I know I can 
do 'pkg_tarup kde' to get a tarball; it will also list a number of 
other packages that it requires.  Those, in turn, will require other 
packages which I'll need to package up.  Is there any easy way to start 
with a package name and get everything that's needed?  I suspect that 
pkgdepgraph can do it, but I haven't figured out the proper option(s) 
and/or scripts.
