I would probably do it this way:

% mkdir my_gcc_variant
% cd my_gcc_variant
% port cat gcc40 > Portfile #-- substituting whichever gcc port you  
actually want
% vi Portfile #-- make changes here, including changing the port name  
to my_gcc_variant
% sudo port install

Changing the name of the port to something new means that if you do a  
port upgrade in the future and the original port doesn't incorporate  
your changes for whatever reason but is a newer version than the one  
you modified, it won't upgrade/overwrite your changes.
