Both, sort of. This port changes its version depending on the value of
cxx_stdlib. So the version in the index which was generated on the
server is different to the version set by the Portfile on your system.
This has been reported as a base bug, but TBH I think the solution is
not to set ports' versions dynamically. The way ld64 handles different
versions on different platforms works much better.
