Then try and uninstall them, if you don't think you need them. If there 
are there because something else depends on them, port will let you 
know. Its worth doing a bit of spring cleaning every now and then, as 
keeping stuff installed you do not need just wastes your time upgrading it.

You could also try rerunning

 > sudo port reclaim

which does a number of tasks aimed at removing stuff you do not need.
