Comment (by jmroot):

 Isn't the entire point of that setting to prevent logs from being deleted
 by clean? I don't see the bug here. If your concern is that there is no
 way to delete logs, `port clean --logs` does that.

 For reference, the responsible code in portclean.tcl is
 if {(([info exists ports_clean_logs] && $ports_clean_logs eq "yes") ||
 ($keeplogs eq "no"))
         && !$usealtworkpath} {
 and the basic logic there has not changed since 2009 with
