rough method of cleaning the ports tree

after noticing how large my ports tree grows while compiling, I thought 
of simply deleting it and do a CVSup to get a new one after the 
compilation is finished.

This should be much faster and also should do some kind o 
defragmentation. I simply cannot believe that the huge ports tree will 
still be very well organised after some months.

What does the list think of this method?
