MacPorts Maintenance

To maintain you macports repository clean and without unused stuff, proceed with:

port clean --all all
sudo port -f uninstall inactive	

If you can’t wait for the clean one to run in the background, there are a few commands you can run manually and faster.

Remove leftover build files (this is done automatically by default):

sudo rm -rf /opt/local/var/macports/build/*

Remove download files:

sudo rm -rf /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/*

Remove archives (these aren’t created by default):

sudo rm -rf /opt/local/var/macports/packages/*
