But not forever. Here's the script I run periodically that deletes distfiles older than a year; you can easily adjust this to delete distfiles sooner. Run the script with sudo so it has sufficient permission to delete the files.

if someone wanted to fix #21787 it would be possible to run a simple port command to delete the distfiles of everything but the current version of the installed ports.
