yes, I should have said I used clang 3.4 on 10.5 Intel. On PPC gcc6 indeed works. 

There are lots of these minor hiccups on old systems, easy to get around but hiccups. Often I fix them and put the fix in LeopardPorts or TigerPorts quickly for me at least to use. I post them up to MacPorts if I get them to a point where I think they'll be accepted...
