Yes, just pkg_delete -f.  If you are feeling compulsive, set

If you remove py27-setuptools, you won’t be able to rebuild it anymore from source, it now requires python3. You might be able to reinstall it from the old binary package, but this defeats the purpose. 

unsafe_depends on all the dependencies.   Leaving the rest has them on
