There is no supported way to do this, and the gcc33 port should fail
a more informative error if you try to do this on an Intel mac. The
is not really macports, but that
1) Building an earlier compiler with a later one is not a supported
with gcc (so problems reported to them will not be treated as bugs), and
2) When the gcc3.3 series was developed there were no OS X/intel
to test it on, and no one has invested the substantial effort to
gcc3.3 to OS X/intel.
Xcode on OS X/intel provides only gcc 4.0 (or later) for compiling
binaries. It does ship with a "gcc33" but that is a cross compiler
ppc binaries only.
The best use of your time is probably to update your code to compile
the gcc 4.0.x compiler that comes with your installed Xcode.
