Once again me ...

This is probably the relevant part of the source
(if {[string match $pattern $compiler]}):

# internal function to determine the default compiler
proc portconfigure::configure_get_default_compiler {} {
    if {[option compiler.whitelist] ne ""} {
        set search_list [option compiler.whitelist]
    } else {
        set search_list [option compiler.fallback]
    foreach compiler $search_list {
        set allowed yes
        foreach pattern [option compiler.blacklist] {
            if {[string match $pattern $compiler]} {
                set allowed no

Should we or should we not introduce more complexity to blacklist
"clang" with xcode < 4 (= whenever clang++ doesn't exist) when "gcc"
is blacklisted?
