 I am looking into this now. I did not see your other messages before
 because I was not Cc'd on the ticket, but I'll Cc myself now since nobody
 else appears to be working on it.

 The INSTALL file says cmake is the preferred build system here. Any reason
 why you didn't use that in the Portfile?

 We still haven't addressed the fact that we're not UsingTheRightCompiler
 and -arch flags here. Currently it tries to build with "gcc" (which could
 be anything on a user's system; we want RepeatableBuilds) and "mpicc"
 (which will not exist on user systems unless they have used "port select",
 and MacPorts ports are not allowed to use the results of "port select" in
 their own builds (and, with trace mode, would be prohibited from doing

 So opencoarrays appears to require mpich in order to build. You've written
 the dependency to be on mpich-devel-gcc5, which depends on gcc5. Therefore
 we would not be able to accommodate #47426 which requests that
 opencoarrays be added as a dependency of gcc5, because that would
 introduce a circular dependency, which is not possible in MacPorts.

 Any reason why you used mpich-devel-gcc5 (the potentially unstable
 development version) and not mpich-gcc5 (the stable version)? If either
 would work, we should use a [ticket:14540 path:-style dependency] (instead
 of a port:-style one) to allow the user to choose between the development
 or stable version, with preference for the stable one.

 The port claims to download version 1.0 of the software, but the
 opencoarrays web site does not mention such a version. It just refers
 users to the github page to download. The github page doesn't have any
 tags. If this is really version 1.0, why isn't there a 1.0 tag in the
 repository? If the URL listed in the portfile's master_sites is an
 official download URL, why isn't it mentioned anywhere on the opencoarrays
 web site?

 I tried adding a universal variant but it failed because the mpich
 dependency doesn't have a universal variant.
