OK. According to

GCC 4.2 & LLVM GCC 4.2

are available as optional compilers. So perhaps not the default (not 
that what you get running 'gcc -v' at the command line necessarily 
matches MacPorts own default). I'm surprised MacPorts does not use gcc 
4.2 by default it it is there ? That said, its been a long while since I 
used OSX  10.5 (and never a PPC version).
