 > That's fine, assuming you'd like to encounter problems and help us work
 through resolving them. :) We would like to be able to support users who
 don't have Xcode installed, but have only just begun to add support for
 that in MacPorts 2.6.0. Prior to that, it was assumed that you have Xcode
 installed, and Xcode-relative SDK paths were used and in many cases got
 baked into ports inadvertently. As of MacPorts 2.6.0, we will use command-
 line-tools-relative SDK paths instead (unless a port indicates the need
 for Xcode by using `use_xcode yes`), but we still have an unknown probably
 large number of binary packages that we distribute that were built prior
 to MacPorts 2.6.0 and so still use Xcode-based SDK paths.

 installing [https://developer.apple.com/download/more/?=xcode%2010.3 Xcode
 10.3], which does contain the 10.14 SDK.

 Cool. THX.

 IMHO this XCode issue is quite redundant.  One could wonder if blaming
 Apple for pushing poor users and agile developers down the road to 10.15
 and apparently into the dark bucket of an ugly copy of Micro-Somethings
 business model, I presume.
