Would it be reasonable to:

1. ask the pkgsrc developers to add a "help" target that would output a
short blurb and list of the other targets in a package?

2. have a "show-depends" target that would show all the dependencies,
and their installation states, and conflicts?

3. be able to set a setting that would inhibit doing a fetch/install for
all dependencies?

4. get a hint about how big a packages and all its dependencies will be?
