Comment (by JDLH):

 Replying to [comment:3 kencu]:
 > The nodejs16 Portfile has always required a full xcode… It says in the
 portfile: {{{use_xcode yes}}}.

 I see {{{use_xcode yes}}} in the Portfile, agreed. But, it seems
 reasonable to expect that {{{port info}}} would tell a MacPorts user what
 they need to know about fundamental dependencies. Users should not have to
 read Portfiles for that. Is this dependency on full Xcode visible visible
 in {{{port info nodejs16}}} output?

 (The good news is that {{{use_xcode yes}}} is documented in the
 [https://guide.macports.org/#reference.keywords MacPorts Guide, 5.1.
 ''Global Keywords'']. Yay.)
