Someone could do that, but it would be — in my opinion — an unfortunate idea. 10.13 users would be forever crippled to qt 14.x when they could have qt 15.x.

According to this <https://ports.macports.org/port/qt5-qtwebengine/stats?days=30&days_ago=0 <https://ports.macports.org/port/qt5-qtwebengine/stats?days=30&days_ago=0>> and this <https://ports.macports.org/port/cctools/stats?days=30&days_ago=0 <https://ports.macports.org/port/cctools/stats?days=30&days_ago=0>>

almost 100% of MacPorts users who are using 10.13 are using Xcode10 anyway, so anyone who wants qt5-qtwebengine has build it already.

IMO — just upgrade yourself to Xcode 10 (like everyone else has done) and the buildbot can stay on Xcode 9.
