Mojave requires Xcode 10 which contains only the 10.14 SDK.

MacPorts doesn't have any particular support at this time for accessing alternative SDKs that the user might have placed in other locations.

I worked on a port to standardize a way to provide other SDK versions, but I have not published it yet. MacPorts base changes would also be required to make it easy for ports to request SDKs that didn't come from the primary Xcode installation.

Apple has announced that macOS 10.15 will remove all 32-bit support.
