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?

But isn’t this needed to set both CC, FC and CPP ?

Indeed I do need C++. And since a Fortran compiler is also needed, I would prefer to compiling Fortran and C with compilers from the same compiler suite (GCC) to avoid link problems. In addition the package requires CPP from GCC to compile properly (it is used in a non-standard way to pre-process Fortran code, and this does not work with Apple’s CPP).
In fact I removed the clang variants because clang does not compile Fortran (same for drgaonegg). Why are variants present when require_fortran is set ?

I’m not... In fact, I would love them to use autotools. It would make the packaging a lot easier. I’ll forward your comment to them :-)

OK. Thanks for looking at this.
