about (config) files created in the post-activate stage

AFAIK it is acceptable practice to create things like configuration files in a port's post-activate, and I presume that those files are not obliged to have fixed names and that they can reflect the context (including installed ports) at the time of creation.

Is there a way to add certain of those files to the list of files to be cleaned up, either when deactivating a port or else in a pre-activate step?
