Install /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade

Then "portsclean -CD" to remove "work" files from /usr/ports/ and to 
remove all non-referenced files in /usr/ports/distfiles/

Its not safe to delete distfiles older than 2000 because a very large 
number of current distfiles are much older than that. Use "ls -lt" to 
see for yourself after having cleaned up with portsclean.
