Base FreeBSD-lld package dependency problems...

Here's a little glitch with packaged base I stumbled upon.

On a freshly pkg upgrade'd 12-current machine, I see:

codling:/usr/home/matthew:# pkg info -dr FreeBSD-lld-12.0.s20180609030436
Depends on     :

So, no dependencies except the runtime.

But look at this:

codling:/usr/home/matthew:# pkg autoremove

Deinstallation has been requested for the following 2 packages:

Looks like FreeBSD-lld might need to register dependencies on
FreeBSD-libefivar and FreeBSD-libregex?  Or perhaps its some other
package that needs libefivar and libregex?
