Like most ports, the ImageMagick port uses the default compiler for the currently running macOS / Xcode version (i.e. clang on OS X 10.7 and later). The portfile doesn't contain any statements about openmp so I have no idea whether the port supports openmp. My understanding is that support for openmp was added in clang 3.8 if that helps.

Attempting to use FSF GCC C++ compilers on OS X 10.9 or later will usually result in problems, since FSF GCC C++ uses libstdc++ and any dependencies you may be trying to use, including dependencies provided by macOS or MacPorts, were built using clang++ using libc++, and you cannot mix and match C++ libraries like that.
