Why pip does not use gcc and g++ automatically? (Mountain Loin)

The macports solution is to file bug reports requesting updated ports for any given python package that is out of date.  

If you have problems with scipy outside of macports (even though the pip is installed by macports), then I recommend filing a bug at the link available at http://www.scipy.org/.


A parallel question is: Is there a pip2port or easy_install2port tool for python packages for which there are not yet ports?  (Pardon me that I haven't googled this.)
