If you no longer wish to install any additional ports, nor upgrade your existing ports, you could uninstall Xcode. However, if you do intend to build anything with MacPorts later, it will most likely need Xcode to do so. (Unless you're talking about the small handful of ports that use a MacPorts compiler like gcc45 or gcc46 instead of the Xcode compiler.)
