I'm trying to figure out why my poudriere build keeps building python27 and isn't removing it. I figured I could do:
   pkg search -Q required-by python27

It just returns python27 as such:
Comment        : Interpreted object-oriented programming language

As an example of depends / required-by that I think should return something:
   pkg search -d py37-pip

Comment        : Tool for installing and managing Python packages
Depends on     :

then doing:  pkg search -Q required-by python37

just returns:
Comment        : Interpreted object-oriented programming language

Shouldn't this be returning at least py37-pip-20.2.3 ???
