Comment (by JDLH):

 Meanwhile, my ignorant MacPorts user take is: MacPorts says you can
 generally get by with just the Xcode Command Line Tools installed. If the
 nodejs16 port requires all of Xcode to be installed, then that should be
 apparent in the list of dependencies which `port info nodejs16` displays.
 What I see is:

 % port info nodejs16
 nodejs16 @16.17.0_2 (devel, net)
 Variants:             openssl3

 Description:          Node's goal is to provide an easy way to build
 scalable network programs in JavaScript. Node is similar in design to and
 influenced by systems like Ruby's Event
                       Machine or Python's Twisted. Node takes the event
 model a bit further-it presents the event loop as a language construct
 instead of as a library.

 ... which does not say, "This depends on having all of Xcode to build", as
 I read it.
