No; MacPorts doesn’t distinguish between ports you requested to install and ports that were installed as a dependency. If gcc48 is installed, MacPorts doesn’t know whether you want “gcc” et al to be changed to point to it. You might even have multiple gcc ports installed. You inform MacPorts which one you want “gcc” to point to, if any, by using “port select gcc”.
