Comment (by kencu):

 libunistring was not uninstalled, as you commanded when you responded "N".

 librotli was uninstalled, as you asked, as there were no issues with
 uninstalling it.

 So the warning was not ignored, it was obeyed.

 however, when you put multiple port uninstalls on one line like that, it
 would be more clear perhaps if there was a port named that was the
 responsible port at each prompt, eg:

 $sudo port uninstall libunistring brotli
 Note: when uninstalling libunistring, dependent ports will break.
 Note: It is not recommended to uninstall/deactivate a port that has
 dependents as it breaks the dependents.
 The following ports will break:
  libidn2 @2.3.4_0
  libpsl @0.21.1-20220513_1
 Continue? [y/N]: N
 --->  Cleaning libunistring
 --->  Deactivating brotli @1.0.9_2
 --->  Cleaning brotli
 --->  Uninstalling brotli @1.0.9_2
 --->  Cleaning brotli

 That is a pretty niche request, but it can be left as a request for
 someone to look at someday.
