No need to change any instructions for MacPorts.

Install the Xcode 7 CLT
Install Xcode 8.0
Everything will work the way you want.

The only reason that we have our users install the CLT package is for the SDK 
that is installed at /.  There is no difference between that content in the 
Xcode 7 CLT and what would have been the Xcode 8 CLT.

The only difference is that the Xcode 8 CLT would contain the Xcode 8 toolchain 
at /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools.  Unfortunately, this toolchain 
(specifically swift) is not compatible with the OS X 10.11 SDK, so we did not 
ship it and are working on a solution to the problem.
