Apple gcc-4.0.1 is the default version of gcc in Tiger's and Leopard's versions of Xcode. Leopard's Xcode also contains Apple gcc-4.2.1 that can be used instead if desired; Tiger's Xcode doesn't. And I see that this ticket is about Tiger.

MacPorts base still runs on Tiger and Leopard but support for those operating systems for individual ports is at those ports' maintainers' discretion. They may not have the time or inclination or knowledge or available computers to troubleshoot and resolve issues with these older OS X versions. If ports are found to not work on earlier OS X versions, and cannot be made to do so, they should instead be made to fail early with a suitable error message; see the transmission port for a good example.
