because cxx_stdlib will equal libc++ and therefore this test (which would lead to the code that does the whitelisting) will fail.

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

it's not the fact that the default compiler has been set that results in 4.0 not being whitelisted -- it's that fact that on that machine where you set clang-3.9 to be the default compiler,  you also have set cxx_stdlb to libc++

If that still seems confusing, follow through the cxx11 1.1 code -- and there is one more point to know -- by default, without you having to specifically set it, on a stock 10.8 machine, cxx_stdlib is set to libstdc++ by macports.
