mysql57, boost and postgresql84

I have no idea why I have postgreSQL:

MrMuscle:~ mnewman$ sudo port dependents postgresql84
postgresql84-server depends on postgresql84
MrMuscle:~ mnewman$ sudo port dependents postgresql84-server
postgresql84-server has no dependents.

I didn’t request it. I don’t use it.

When I list requested ports, there are always several that I don’t recognize, such as:

boost, gcc7, mysql57-server,  and nss.

But, there they are.
