Process for checking port dependencies

This ASSP port is going to kill me.
I have either through MacPorts, or local ports I have made, nearly
made ASSP as a new port. Below, is my testing methodology, can
someone confirm this is the best process, or if there are simpler
methods that I should be using?
Clean up as if a new user
rm -rf /opt/local
sudo port -d install p5-some-perl-module
If the above goes clean
port list installed
If the above shows it is installed
port uninstall -d p5-some-perl-module
Rinse and repeat.
If I run into a something that is complaining that it needs some other
dependency, I find it, add it to the portfile, and try again the steps
above. I am not rm'ing every time, just once, to mimic a new user.
I have somewhere around 40 or these to do, it is a process. If there
is anything anyone can share to make it easier, I sure would love to
