#56463: htop: compiler on older systems
 Reporter:  iEFdev  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal  |  Milestone:
Component:  ports   |    Version:  2.4.4
 Keywords:  Lion    |       Port:  htop
 When installing `htop` on older systems (like my Lion), the bundled
 compiler creates a version where no processes are shown in the window. The
 bundled version of `gcc` is 4.2. If I test to build it manually using a
 newer version of `gcc` it works fine (I tested with gcc5 and gcc7), and
 when using the bundled version to mimic MP - it fails.

 // To reproduce:
 # cd cloned repo or src dir from gh-tarball
 ./configure CC=/usr/bin/gcc    # to mimic mp
 ./htop                         # nope

 make clean
 ./configure CC=gcc             # /opt/local/bin/gcc-mp-{5,7}
 ./htop                         # yes

 I guess the Portfile needs another compiler version to use instead of ther
 bundled one, but I don't know what min version it would need. I just tried
 with the 2 I have installed.

 // Perhaps more systems are affected?
