I have DEPENDS_TARGET= bin-install clean and removing things and rerunning mostly works, as long as when you delete a package you mark things that depend on it with "pkg_admin set rebuild=YES", or unsafe_depends. Really the pkg tools should set unsafe_depends on depending packages when pkg_delete -f is used. Also with -k, often the top-level package gets replaced which rebuilds lots of (this week) py39-foo, leaving a bunch of py38-foo or py27-foo that are no longer needed. So I frequently do 'pkgin ar' to drop things I don't need, and not trip over rebuilding them or conflicts with py27-foo and py39-foo. > Also, what should I expect to have to do when using the new binary > packages with "pkgin".

You may have to pkgin export, remove things, and then pkgin add what you want. I generate a summary file. It helps to keep a clean list of "keep" vs not. (keep is true if automatic=yes is not true.) And it helps to 'pkgin ar'. I've been building on one machine (that I don't care if it is up any particular day) and doing pkgin fug on two servers that I do care about. It's been really close to totally ok on the servers, and minor hiccups on the build machine. If you don't like this, instead generate a needed list and configure a small bulk build.
