How about 'pkg_info -m' for all manually installed packages and save to 'file' then 'pkg_add -l' file ?

One way
1) Generate a list of manually installed packages leaving out the dependencies
$ pkg_info -m > pkgs.txt
2) Delete all installed packages
# pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/*
3) You may need to edit your pkgs.txt if there have been interim updates/patches. Here is an example:
Code:
cabextract-1.5p0    extracts files from Microsoft CAB archives
to
Code:
cabextract
If you use the vi editor, "D" (delete from cursor to end of line) works wonderfully for this.
4) Re install the packages from pkgs.txt
Code:
pkg_add -l pkgs.txt

No modification of the pkg_info output file is needed if you use the -z option with pkg_add(1).

$ pkg_info -qm will give you a simpler list, and one which is is slightly faster to obtain.
