I'm want to free up some disk space and was wondering if it's ok to delete the contents of /var/tmp/portage. Currently it's 430M and need some room

Yes, it's safe to remove everything below /var/tmp/portage.

Emerge used to leave debug log and environment information for the build though it does not appear to do that by default now. If you've 430Mb I'd suspect you cancelled an emerge.
