This change uninstalled more ports than I intended. This resulted in many ports needing to be reinstalled often. This slowed down builds and resulted in a backlog of builds. I fixed the problem which means more ports will remain installed now, which will take a little more disk space again.

Both copies of the simulator caches came back again. I filed FB9072613 with Apple about this. We were down to 3GB free disk space which isn't a good place to be. I deleted the caches again and marked the dyld directories chmod 000. Let's see if that prevents Xcode from recreating the caches, hopefully without causing error messages that cause builds to fail. We now have 21GB free.
