We do not want the user to be able to specify that. It's yet another variable of limited utility that we don't have adequate resources to support.

That is to say, the user can already specify the compiler by overriding configure.compiler when running the install command. But we don't want to put that in macports.conf to give the mistaken impression that we approve of users doing that.
