Because I use whatever MacPorts comes with...  I don't touch *anything* in 
that area except upon advice from this list (I don't futz around with 
symlinks, for example, although I can under FreeBSD).

If it wants to build with gcc49, then, well, it wants to build with gcc49; 
I certainly didn't tell it to...

Or are you saying that I need the latest Xcode, which needs High Sierra, 
which seems to refuse to install on this box?  13", late 2009, firmware 
"6,1" (note the comma).

There aren't any firmware upgrades for the thing; I can cheat and reflash 
it to look like a "Pro" instead, but I ain't about to go down that route 
any time soon...
