where did old clang compilers go?

Hi all!

I did an upgrade on my 10.6 MacBook ... I am stuck on a few remaining 
packages, but I did accept "reclaim" since there were many many packages 

This operation removed clang 3.4, 3.9, 4.0 and 5.0 ! Now... I need those 
compilers to compile code (currently not in MacPorts, but hopefully 
soon) like TenFourFox and ArcticFox.

if I try to reinstall 3.9, I get that the port is obsoleted! I cannot 
even reactivated it.

Newer clang compiler, e.g. 8, fail to compile code for Mac 10.6 because 
of old headers.

How can I get it back? and, generally, I don't think it was good idea to 
remove them: MacPorts is very useful to get development tools, not just 
"end-apps" which might in the meanwhile all be migrated to newer compilers.
