verifying your macports

After the scare of spurious libgcc getting in the way, I'm wondering
how can we verify our setups. This is when rpm-style verification
and binary distros shine. Sure you can compile stuff, but what if
some crap got into your PATH -- beginning with a wrong gcc? What if
some other crap got into LDFLAGS or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH or whatever?
What tools are there to verify
-- completeness of each port
-- proper chain of dependencies of each port
-- checking that no port depends on any package not built by the
ports -- e.g., nothing outside /opt/local
-- that each executable in /opt/local/bin will load
-- what else?
