704_ sudo port install gcc7
--->  Computing dependencies for gcc7
Error: Can't install libgcc-devel because conflicting ports are active: libgcc
Error: Follow to report a bug.
Error: Processing of port gcc7 failed

Anyone got the answer on this one?

I need gcc5 installed for backwards compatibility for a while.
