First things first. Do you really need GCC ? The primary compilers in 
macOS are now based on clang, and I recommend you use these instead of 
GCC for a number of reasons. To have access to these you need to make 
sure you have Xcode etc. installed. see

For details related to using these compilers with MacPorts.
