If one does
sudo port -f uninstall installed
it appears that each is followed by a "clean".
In the situation that a person was changing neither their hardware (i.e. not "retoring" a backup to some new machine) nor changing the installed Mac OS but only wishing to "start over" (for example, if they would alter build_arch), might it be a mistake to skip
sudo port clean --work --archive all
or would it be redundant and safe to skip?
