If it helps, a simple and quick way to do this is:

# show a list of all the ports you asked MacPorts to install so
# that we can easily put them back later
# maybe save this to a file
port echo requested  

# don’t completely uninstall all your ports, just deactivate them
sudo port deactivate active

< do whatever>

# activate your desired ports
sudo port activate <any or all of the ports previously deactivated>

The key is that you don’t have to download any ports--and possibly build some from source.  An installer is kept that contains a compressed archive of all the files contained in the port.
