Apparently a lot of progress has been made in the recent past and money has been flowing into the arena of certified compilers. What's preventing Apple from having a third party independent audit of their developer tools (which MacPorts depends on, and the rest of the world also depends on for a wide range of apps either for OS X or iOS)? Seriously, how hard would this be and I can't imagine it being a terrible expense to Apple to do this and show the world that its compilers are trojan free. 

So, write to Apple and ask them.
