The point of the whitelist is to deal with buggy compilers. If 3.7 is
preferred then it usually means that 3.6 can't build a working version of
the port; as such, it would be expected to install a compiler that will
build the port, not fail to build (or worse, build a nonworking program)
because someone has a preferred version installed.
`port select` should never affect what compiler is used to build a port; if
it does, that is a bug.
Compilers you have installed manually (i.e. not via MacPorts) should not be
used to build ports; if one is, that is a bug.
