"sudo port clean --all PORTNAME" will clean the work area, distfiles
and archives of a port. You can use this on any port, installed or
not. It will not uninstall an installed port.
"sudo port uninstall PORTNAME" will of course uninstall the port and
all its registered files.
There may still be unregistered files associated with a port. For
example, some ports copy their default configuration files for you;
these copies will be left behind. You must manually locate and remove
them if you want them gone.
