As ocicat mentioned, the ports tree can be helpful for research and planning, if you have the disk space.

If you just want to install a package, and you have an Internet connection, you do not need to know the dependency structure. All you need to do is set the PKG_PATH environment variable and run pkg_add. All dependencies will be automatically installed.
