I have no idea why I have postgreSQL:

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.

Then try and uninstall them, if you don't think you need them. If there are there because something else depends on them, port will let you know. Its worth doing a bit of spring cleaning every now and then, as keeping stuff installed you do not need just wastes your time upgrading it.

You could also try rerunning

> sudo port reclaim

which does a number of tasks aimed at removing stuff you do not need.
