I don’t know. The build bot log for Mountain Lion says:
DEBUG: cfitsio is installed with the following variants:
DEBUG: required: gcc5, forbidden:
DEBUG: rejected, because required variant gcc5 is missing
Error: org.macports.configure for port gildas returned: cfitsio must be installed with +gcc5.
so I thought that the cfitsio +gcc5 variant was missing on that platform. But perhaps I misunderstand the build bot log?
