You would provide a patch file modifying the source code as originally
unpacked. See https://guide.macports.org/chunked/development.patches.html
(and the rest of https://guide.macports.org/chunked/ for more information
on Portfile development). This patch should only be applied on pre-10.7

The filename it's talking about should be a hint... it's a deliberate
failure, and if that had succeeded then configure would have aborted with a
complaint about your C compiler being broken.

Lots of configure tests fail, because configure checks for include files,
libraries, and functions that may or may not exist on any given OS or
release thereof. If the compiler doesn't error out when it should, then it
can't check what functionality works on your system.
