 Should I abandon gcc5 and go to gcc6? This is delaying upgrades of
 py##-matplotlib and octave. I have a Mavericks installation where the
 update of qhull proceeds normally.
 > Oh, I expected you to work on 10.5.8 Intel. However, if I remember
 right, on my 10.6.8 64 bit Intel machine qhull could be built without a
 Portfile change just by specifying `sudo port -s upgrade qhull
 configure.compiler=macports-gcc-5` in the command line. To be honest, I
 was a bit surprised that no complaint came up concerning the `-arch`
 switch on that machine. Anyway, I do not think that `gcc6` would solve
 your issue. What is the error being issued on your 10.6.8 machine?

 The errors are the same as those in my initial report.
