Default Question about removing ports/packages

Hello. I'm having a small problem. A few days ago, I installed opera browser from the ports. Nice and easy, all dependencies installed and df(1) showed that the occupied space went from 42% to 49%. I didn't care much, since I don't have many programs installed.

Today I decided to remove the browser with a simple pkg_delete. Although I read in the man pages that pkg_delete
examines installed package records for the pkgname specified,
checks inter-dependencies between installed packages, deletes the package
contents in an order respecting dependencies (e.g., packages with
dependencies get removed first), and finally removes the package records.
I think I miss something () and it doesn't remove all dependencies (even if I don't need them). I removed also fedora_base manually and df still shows 49% occupied...

Is there any way to first view all Opera dependencies and after reinstalling do a massive uninstall with the dependencies?

edit: forgot to mention my big question about removing ports in general. Is there any way to see a dependency tree or something like that about every port and choose what to uninstall and what not?

(at least I have the wireless working perfectly )
