You can run "sudo port clean atlas" to clean out your build attempt to free up disk space. But when the atlas port is fixed, you'll "sudo port selfupdate" to receive the fix, and then when you try to upgrade atlas, MacPorts would automatically clean it, because it notices that the portfile is newer than your last build attempt.
