What I usually do, is:

  sudo port selfupdate
  sudo port -u upgrade outdated

I read quite recently in the port documentation (man port) about the 
usage of that "-u" option, which does exactly what you want, that is 
removing inactive ports.

I'm not an expert; I just read every now and than chunk of the manual,
so any comment from people with more knowelge/experience is wellcome,
even just a confirmation.
