I find that 'pkg_delete -af' gives more reliable results.  Agreed, it
should not be necessary but sometimes the dependency relationships
between ports aren't generated quite right, and '-f' just lets
pkg_delete do its thing without worrying about that -- not that
dependency ordering matters at all when you're deleting everything in
any case.
