Comment (by jonesc@…):

 What will happen to users install the default port (no variants). will
 they be automatically migrated to the new default if we where to change to
 gcc49 ? I don't want to make the change and suddenly have users asking why
 they are no longer using the binary installs, and being forced to building
 from source, just because what was default variants is no longer the case.

 Note that root only uses gcc for an F77 compiler, so on that basis it
 makes no difference what so ever which is used. I maintain the variants
 just to allow users who do build from source, for whatever reason, the
 ability to choose incase they have a preference (for instance maybe they
 already have one gcc installed, and do not wish to get a different one).

 I am not against changing the default, eventually it will have to be done,
 but only if it can be done transparently to users.
