See the ports(7) manpage.

'make deinstall' effectively 'uninstalls' the application and all
associated files and dirs, but only if those files/dirs haven't changed
since the application was first installed.

To make sure you clean out the port's working directory (where the port
is built etc), as well as uninstalling the application - add the 'clean'
target to the make command:

make clean deinstall
