These could be viewed as bugs in those ports, but I'm worried there may be many of them. I'm worried, for instance, about all ports that build using cmake.

I have kept my 10.10 machine at Xcode 6.4 for now, and if you can do that too, you will probably have fewer problems as a result. But I might upgrade to Xcode 7 just to see what problems arise and to see if I can fix them. Users of 10.11 have to use Xcode 7 or later; earlier versions will cause problems there.
