I’ve been using a simple workaround for several years now, but kept it to myself so far.

Simple enough to symlink  the compiler / cctools parts / and ld in the 10.6 SDK to the equivalents in /opt/local.

With this, I can force clang-3.9 / libc++ xcode builds on 10.6.8 with a few simple, and build lots of things that way.

So it’s quite possible, but I don’t know if it’s bakeable into a macports port.
