To be more specific, the "gcc from the system" here is llvm-gcc, not gcc. And in any case, that's a C compiler, whereas the atlas port also needs a fortran compiler. No version of Xcode from Apple has included a fortran compiler, which is why the atlas port requires you to install one, or else indicate that you wish to omit the fortran-requiring parts of atlas.
