Erase them. Besides how much trouble can they be causing?

Honestly, portmanager only uses those files when it runs. Each time it
is restarted, except with the '--resume' flag, it erases them and
creates new one.

By the way, do you have:


in your /etc/rc.conf file? If not, you might want to add it if you feel
that you /tmp directory is getting clogged with garbage. I believe there
is a setting in periodic daily to clean out tmp files only.
