To throw some lack of XCode experience out there, I've been running with only the command line tools installed for a while. I get the warning about possibly failing to build ports each time* I try to install/upgrade something, but it's still working just fine. However, I have had the whole of XCode installed at some point.
* Warning text: former is once per run, latter is on every port being processed Warning: xcodebuild exists but failed to execute Warning: Xcode does not appear to be installed; most ports will likely fail to build.
