qt5 (base and some other ports) still works on 10.7 without libc++
being set globally. If one would include the cxx11 portgroup, these
ports would fail to install as well.

But it would probably help if you would use libc++ instead of libstdc++.

There's probably a ticket for that somewhere. If not a ticket, there
was at least a thread on the devel mailing list.
