will delete all distfiles that aren't referenced by any of the ports
currently under /usr/ports.
will delete all distfiles which aren't referenced by any currently
installed port or package.
portsclean(1) is part of the portupgrade suite of tools.
Otherwise, you can find all of the files older than a certain date by:
# cd /usr/ports/distfiles
# touch -t 200001010000 datestamp
# find . \! -newer datestamp -type f -print
