This is a part of the pkg-order suite. This does precisely
what you want.
PKG-NODEP(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation PKG-NODEP(1)
pkg-nodep - List of packages that are not targets.
usage: pkg-node [options]
where the options are:
--check-recommends Check Recommends as well [OFF]
--check-suggests Check Suggests as well [OFF]
This utility details out the list of packages installed
that have no other packages that depend on them
(optionally also checks Recommends and Suggestions).
The default is to assume that the list of installed packages may be
derived from the file I</var/lib/dpkg/status>, but the user may
override this by providing a I<Packages> file listing all the
packages that are assumed to be installed.
This is very inchoate, at the moment, and needs testing.
None Known so far.
