There are numerous tools for doing this; e.g.,
pkg_cutleaves and pkg_rmleaves.

This is common because not all ports build with a given automake
version, so the wrapper takes care of selecting the appropiate version.

I would say that it's a waste of time to uninstall these since they take
next to no space, and reinstalling them everytime you build something
seems like a bigger waste in the long run.
