I'm very excited about this new version! I finally figured out a way
to incorporate the "trick" of checking the distinfo files for
up-to-date distfile names into the per-port distfile cleaning routine.
Now the number of false positives for other distfiles with similar
names (ala php-*, Net-*, Digest-*, X11R6.9.0-* etc.) will be
significantly reduced, almost to 0. Using a temp file to store this
information also speeds up the distfile checking part of the
--clean-distfiles* options, without penalizing the distinfo file
information gathering process.
The --show-work option is something I've had on my TODO list for a
long time, and finally had a brief flash of inspiration on how to

1. --show-work option which will recurse through all-depends-list
and show what dependencies are, and are not installed.
2. Dramatically reduce false positives for per-port distfile
cleaning by creating a list of valid distfiles for all ports. Use
this new method for the --clean-distfiles* options as well.
Honor DISTDIR if set for --clean-distfiles*
