Macports Clang 3.9 compilation failures due to missing <atomic> include

Hi Chris,

Looking over the xrootd commit, and to hopefully make your life much easier when using the PortGroup cxx11 1.1, you generally don't need to do much of anything beyond adding the PortGroup. You can pretty much expect to delete all the other compiler selection components in your Portfile.

all the compiler selection issues are handled by the PortGroup. The +libstdcxx variant is automatic with clang-4.0.

The only thing you might possibly need to adjust is default clang blacklist is <500, so if you need something newer when using libc++, you'd have to spec that. That is unusual.

Also, I'd hope that we don't blacklist *gcc* any more -- it doesn't add anything when using the cxx11 1.1 PortGroup, and it messes up the PPC fixes (small group, but what the heck).
