Well, for example, Apple clang < 602 doesn't understand -std=c++14, but the portgroup only blacklists clang < 500. So for C++14 ports like textmate2 I've been adding the clang < 602 blacklist in addition to including the portgroup. But the more new C++ standards get introduced, the more complicated this will get.
