Fink has option to clean up temp files or debs.. (there are a few of the sub options too). But stuff under such as:
/sw/src, /sw/src/fink.build, etc have old built debs or the source files left there that can't be cleaned up. Even if fink cleanup --all will not get them cleaned.
I found those hidden spaces once I was trying to reclaim some spaces back. It took 800MB+ to store those debs and source files and I am sure it will grow more and more if I was not aware of the existence.
I can see the point of storing files locally but when I only care to get more spaces back than anything else, I would love to see an option from fink that can really claim any hidden spaces that fink might have occupied. Something like fink cleanup --env-all to cleanup any built/installed deb files, source files, and built temporary files would be great.
