The clang-4.0 dependency on a stock unmodified 10.8.5 system comes from the cxx11 1.1 portgroup being include in qt5, which whitelists this compiler for you.

if {${cxx_stdlib} eq "libstdc++" } {

    compiler.blacklist-append   {macports-clang-3.[0-8]} clang

    compiler.whitelist-append  \
        macports-clang-4.0     \

The full file is here:

For your other situation where the cxx_stdlib has been set to libc++, this whitelisting will not be forced, and you’ll go back to default to clang-3.9, which has been set in your macports.conf default_compilers setting.
