I just did a `port selfupdate; port upgrade outdated' run under macos  
10.10.3 on a mac pro. `octave' fails like this during the configure phase  
(final section of main.log):

:info:configure checking whether we are using the GNU Fortran 77  
compiler... no
:info:configure checking whether /opt/local/bin/gfortran-mp-4.8 accepts  
-g... no

:info:configure Exit code: 1
:error:configure Failed to configure octave, consult

"eval $procedure $targetname"
:info:configure Warning: targets not executed for octave:  
org.macports.install org.macports.configure org.macports.build  

it seems the fortran compiler is not found or cannot be used, no? does  
this require a bug report or am I overlooking something obvious?


ps: the same selfupdate/upgrade does _not_ choke on `octave' on a macbook  
pro also running 10.10.3...
