 I'm trying to update the gnustep ports.  One significant aspect of this is
 that, gnustep does not require the GNU gcc compiler.  It can work fine
 with the standard Apple compiler. However I can't seem to change the
 default. Setting "gnustep.cc cc" in my Portfile doesn't seem to work.

 In any case, the real problem is that gnustep.cc should not be set at all.
 gnustep-make discovers and defines CC and passes this on to anything that
 is build with gnustep-make.  So there could be a variant in the gnustep-
 make port to set CC to either the Apple or GNU compiler (and include the
 proper depends_lib if required), but there is no need to set CC for any
 other gnustep Portfile as it should get the CC defined in gnustep-make
