They all leave files under the distfiles directory that the ports tree
doesn't know about. For instance, with devel/cscout-devel not being in
the category Makefile, portsclean doesn't know about
devel/cscout-devel/distinfo, and thus asks to delete the port distfiles
(cscout-2.1-freebsd-i386.tar.gz & cscout-2.1-neutral.tar.gz).
With print/foomatic-db doing a CVS checkout (currently in directory
distfiles/foomatic-db-20050309) and creating a tarball from this
(foomatic-db-20050309.tar.bz2), and leaving behind the CVS checkout
directory, portsclean doesn't know about all of these individual files,
and asks to delete each of them (about 2,260 files!).
The others are each slightly different, but hopefully this conveys the idea.
