Requesting advice on how to workaround llvm-gcc42 "unsupported platform" error

On Mavericks, I had the gnome-desktop package running; that is the only possible dependency I know of.  How would I keep gnome-desktop (or the equivalent) working, but not be stopped by this error?

I intend to fix this in the near future (, but do you actually require llvm-gcc42? Do any of your other ports depend on it?
