'sudo port clean --all inactive' will remove the distfiles, and
'sudo port uninstall inactive' will uninstall the inactive versions.
You might also like to try the port_cutleaves port, which walks you
through removing 'orphan' ports.
BTW, I understand using -u when upgrading, but why -R? The latter will
upgrade dependents of the ports being upgraded, but that is unnecessary
if you're running 'port upgrade outdated', since everything outdated
will be upgraded anyway.
