Xcode 4.2, like Xcode versions before it, comes with more than one compiler. llvm-gcc-4.2 is one of them, but it also includes clang; clang is the default even. So if the problem is, as the comment states, that Xcode 4.2's clang miscompiles mpfr, then you need to use the compiler_blacklist_versions portgroup to blacklist Xcode 4.2's version of clang.
Oh: I forgot: we changed the default compiler for Xcode 4.2 from clang to llvm-gcc-4.2 in r118085 to match Xcode 4.1 and 4.0.
Still, we have a mismatch between the comment and the blacklist. Either the comment is wrong or incomplete, or the blacklist is wrong or incomplete.
