Right. I meant "worse" in the sense of "more confusing", as far as the port itself goes.

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.

This sounds pretty good.
