What I think happened is that clang-5.0 was not installed, so MacPorts
wanted to build it first, but it needed a compiler to build 5.0 and
went for clang-4.0 for that. But clang-4.0 was not installed either,
so it needed to build it first and had to pick a suitable compiler for
that and so went for clang-3.9 for that job (3.9 was marked as "failed
in an earlier attempt" due to problems with cmake, so it didn't build
anything at all).

It's just unconfirmed speculation though.
