No, that's expected.  If ppc is desirer, we should have 127.2.

I think the best solution would probably be similar to the perl port.  We should maybe have ld64-97, ld64-127, ld64-136, and ld64-latest subports and have the ld64 port depends_run on the subport that should be selected.  The ld64 subports should all be simultaneously-installable and $prefix/bin/ld should be a symlink to the "preferred" one.

That will also make it easier to bootstrap to use 136 to bootstrap 236 with Xcode 3.2.
