I second this notion. "portsclean -DLC" is great for recovering disk
space after port installs and/or using "portupgrade -arR".
Clean out all the distfiles that are not referenced by any port in
the ports tree. Specified twice (i.e. -*DD* ), clean out all the
distfiles that are not referenced by any port that is currently
installed. (cf. / DISTDIR/)
Clean out old, duplicate and/or orphaned shared libraries.
**portsclean** first deletes duplicate shared libraries where
appropriate, then puts away old and orphaned shared libaries to
/usr/local/lib/compat/pkg updating symlinks properly. To keep binaries
<http://www.gsp.com/cgi-bin/man.cgi?section=8&topic=ldconfig>(8) is run
after each library deletion or move.
**portsclean** is so wise you can safely run it without turning -*i* on.
However, if you want to do further cleanup, specify the flag to be asked
on possibly unneeded libraries too.
You can use the sysutils/libchk port to check which library is linked
with which binaries.
Clean out all the working directories of the ports tree. (cf. /
