you should probably just clear /usr/portage/distfiles/ where the tars of all programs you ever emerged are stored. You could delete /usr/portage, but obviously you won't be able to emerge stuff after that. However, emerge sync will restore /usr/portage.

You're best bet would be to delete
Code:
/usr/portage/distfiles/*
