This is odd. I had llvm34 through llvm39. I only found one dependency when
I deleted them, an old version of clang. (Deleted it, too.) this is on a
system with full MATE desktop and almost 1500 ports. I'm really curious
what might have been showing a run dependency on 37. Did you try
re-building them so that they would depend on llvm39? Note: I did not have
to do this on my 11-STABLE system which has by far the most ports
