10.6+ work great with libc++. I wouldn't feel a need to explore any other options. Just the binaries would help, once y'all decide how to name/specify them.

10.4 and 10.5 users who have PPC machines worth keeping might well have to consider gcc cxx11options, if those systems are to have any path forward to newer software. Jeremy has discussed this on a recent gtk3 ticket. It would not be expected to be part of the standard MacPorts process, as there is already plenty to do. A shadow repository for certain selected ports on these systems, such as the ones I've been building these past few months, would be the most likely way this would be implemented I think....
