Comment(by hashar@…):

 In this case, the extract dependency is only needed to extract an archive.
 Whatever version would fit the dependency, a specific version could still
 be required though.

 At the moment, MacPorts acts like if it would request to upgrade bash +
 GNU core-utils just because the installed package has a shell script :-)
