Yes, this is really necessary. The gcc40 port was built so you would
have a gfortran that is
ABI compatible with your gcc and g++. Apple does not supply gfortran
so MacPorts has to build it.
(And Octave really does have modules written in c, c++ and fortran :-) )
The Octave port uses Apple's gcc and g++, which means it may well
fail to build when Apple's
compilers move from 4.0.x to 4.1 or 4.2. The R port takes a more
and builds with gcc, g++ and gfortran from a single release. We used
to have a fortran only
port (g77) but there were endless problems in getting executables to
link properly with modules
compiled by different version of Apple's compilers.
