The simplest available command would be:

sudo port uninstall inactive

You may also be interested in the port_cutleaves command (which can be installed by installing the port_cutleaves port) which will guide you through removing ports you no longer need, including inactive ports and any others that are not referenced as a dependency by any other port.
