-== A port fails to build when using Xcode 4 == #compiler
+== A port fails to build when using Xcode 4/5 == #compiler
 gcc has been the compiler collection MacPorts has used by default up until Xcode 4, in which Apple has switched to the llvm/clang compiler collection. These are new compilers and many programs have not yet been tested with them, and some ports will fail as a result. Using a different compiler may work better for a particular port. If the below workarounds enable you to install a port that failed with its default compiler, file a ticket and let us know so we can fix it. Portfile authors, see wiki:PortfileRecipes#compiler.

+checking for Tcl configuration... configure: error: Can't find Tcl configuration definitions
+The file `tclConfig.sh` was included in the Mac OS X base in earlier releases, but was moved to the Xcode Command Line Tools in 10.9; these are normally installed the first time you run `clang` after accepting the Xcode license, but running the `configure` script doesn't run `clang` until after the Tcl check. The easiest way to force installation is to run:
+xcode-select --install
