Do you mean a separate sanity check command? There isn't any. What
would such a command do?
And what do you mean by "rebuild world"? If you mean rebuild all
installed ports, then no, there's no build-in command to do that. You
would have to manually rebuild each installed port, preferably in
dependency order which could be hard to figure out. Or you could
write down which ports (and their variants) are installed, then
uninstall all ports and reinstall all your ports. Either way it will
take some time. And there are less drastic ways to fix most problems,
so it would help to know what problem you're experiencing.

You mean the subversion-javahlbindings port? According to "port deps"
it has these dependencies:
$ port deps subversion-javahlbindings
subversion-javahlbindings has library dependencies on:
Are all these installed and active?

If you have inactive ports, they're not used for anything so removing
them is safe. Unless they were in use and you deactivated them
without installing a newer version for example.
If you tell us what specific issues you are experiencing maybe we can
help resolve them.
