Is there a way to tell whether I still need any MacPort ports? (besides deleting them of course)

Many port I installed a couple of years back and in the meantime I've gone to SnowLeopard...

Also, in some of my gem installs I'm seeing things like "ld: in /opt/local/lib/libz.1.dylib, file is not of required architecture"...

If you installed Macports under Leopard then upgraded the OS I would suggest that you delete Macports as Macports does not support upgradinging the OS see Macports migration notes

You can use the port dependents command to check to see which ports depend on a particular port. For example, $ port dependents $PORT will show a list of all ports that require $PORT.
