I have a script: cleans up ports with a "work" dir and removes distfiles 
that no port is refering to. Not perfect - it doesn't descend deeply 
into distfiles directories. Also, I'd like to add the posibility of 
removing old packages if you "make package".

But, it works good enough :-)

you can also "make NOCLEANDEPENDS=yes clean" in /usr/ports, but this 
won't remove old distfiles. If you do not use NOCLEANDEPENDS=yes, make 
clean will clean out dependencies for each port which will do multimple 
cleans on a lot of ports. Takes extra time.

Cheers, Erik
