As far as I am aware ROOT6 does not offer any build option to use an 
external clang installation. It always builds its own internal version, 
and I would not be in favour of MacPorts changing this until such a time 
as upstream offers it as an officially supported option. Not that I am 
against a libClang, I can see the usefulness, but I don't really see 
ROOT6 using it any time soon.
