I agree with David.
The compiliation does not have to be avoided for variants,
but it would be nice if the default variants were proliferated.

Scientific users don’t care the internal/policy of the package manager.
What they need is a quick way to install the ports they need.
The installation should be preferably automatic.
Most of the users will be upset with the error messages and find that MacPorts are not for them.
