Default Remove xfce

I decided to remove the crutches and stick with base (cwm).

Unfortunately, I had already installed xfce:

Code:
doas pkg_add xfce xfce-extras
However:

Code:
doas pkg_delete xfce xfce-extras
Does not get rid of xfce!

Hmm...

Code:
pkg_info -Q xfce
Reveals:

Code:
xfce-4.12p10
xfce-extras-4.12p1
etc.

But then:

Code:
pkg_delete xfce-4.12p10 xfce-extras-4.12p1
Gets me:

Code:
Problem finding xfce-4.12p10
Problem finding xfce-4.12p1
What gives? How do I get rid of xfce?

You're misunderstanding pkg_info(1) -Q, or misunderstanding $PKG_PATH:
Code:
     -Q query
             Show all packages in $PKG_PATH which match the given query.
Instead, try $ pkg_info | grep xfce. You'll get the empty set. And, now that you've uninstalled the manually added xfce, you can also remove all unneeded dependencies with # pkg_delete -a.
