However, my port requires that CC, CXX, CPP, and FC/F77 are all from a gcc variant. For example, it's not possible to compile it using CC=clang and FC=gfortran-mp-4.8. How can I modify it so that all compilers come from the same compiler suite?

Looking at the portfile, things seem mostly fine. A few comments (which
will hopefully help start documenting the compilers portgroup :-)
- compilers.choose is really meant to serve as a way to isolate a c-only
or fortran-only build; since you specify both, you don't need it
- removing the clang variants only stops macport's clang compilers from
being used; this is fine but since you don't need c++ you could mix
clang with gfortran
- what is it with IRAM, Labri, and Enseeiht not using autoconf? is
everyone in France allergic to autotools?
- (note to self) I really need to figure out why mpi_variant_isset
doesn't work outside of a staging block (e.g. pre-configure)
I'll try to compile the port today and see if I can get clang working.
