I imported pkg_rmleaves from FreeBSD Ports into pkgsrc-wip. This tool
scans the pkg dbdir for leaf packages and displays them in a dialog menu
(or optionally xdialog or kdialog). The user can then choose which leaf
packages he wants to remove, and which he wants to keep. After the removal
pkg_rmleaves checks for new leaf packages and shows those again, and so on
until no more new leaf packages are found.
I also added a -a flag to make pkg_rmleaves act only on automatically
installed packages (according to pkg_info -Qautomatic), as suggested by
I hope you'll find this package useful.
