I have no idea how to do it from binary already installed packages, but
when you build a port a simple 

make package-recursive 

seems to make all the needed packages and puts them
in /usr/ports/packages if the dir exists.

I have built a few ports on my Pi in the last few days and they all did
the right thing with make package-recursive.  I had to force pkgng onto
the Bone to then install them on the Bone because the Bone expected to
use pkg, not pkgng.  I am not sure why the disconenct between the two

I am going to write something up on this in the next few days.
