And, on the new machine it, and the chain down, installed +universal, while on the older machine it installed the default variant.  Both computers installed gcc6 6.2.0_2.

Try with this:

  port echo depends_build:gcc6 and installed

This is only using the information from the latest ports tree, but could
probably answer your question.
