You’ve made clang-3.9 a build dep for everything by setting the default compiler to clang-3.9. It will always be listed, for all ports. It’s the way macports works.

The fact that it’s listed as a build dep now won’t cause any harm, take up any room, or affect anything. You set it that way, and you already have clang-3.9 installed.

Does this concern you somehow? It shouldn’t. Just ignore it.
