Comment (by ryandesign):

 MacPorts does not use gcc as the default compiler on Lion. /usr/bin/gcc is
 not gcc on Lion and later. For Xcode 4.0.x–4.2.2 MacPorts uses llvm-gcc,
 while for Xcode 4.3 and newer we use clang.

 We don't generally want to build ports with FSF GCC. If any compiler is
 unsatisfactory for whatever reason, the port should blacklist it and let
 MacPorts choose the next best compiler, which, if all Xcode compilers are
 unsatisfactory, will be a newer version of clang provided by MacPorts.
