That sounds reasonable, except that it would create duplicate archives (one "libstdcxx", one "libcxx") for noarch ports that definitely don't use any C++ library, wouldn't it?

Wouldn't it also have been reasonable to have the os name and version as part of those settings? Why was that put into the filename instead?

If we used this strategy, what hypothetical base URL would we use for libc++ packages on older systems? Would you define a second hostname in addition to packages.macports.org (inconvenient for mirrors), or would you create a subdirectory on that server?
