Thanks, but it seems to check binaries only, not packages.  In
particular, it seems to not check Perl or Python package dependencies.

So: Is there a command (or a simple shell invocation) to walk over all
packages to check whether all dependencies are fulfilled?  I suppose
that `sudo port upgrade outdated` doesn't do this for efficiency.

Thanks again.
