MacPorts 2.6 - Leopard 20.6 and libgcc8

Hmm, yeah. Now I look at that again its clear the deps are not really right for older systems that do not support all the various gcc versions.

I think the fix is to not explicitly list all the libgcc versions for each older gcc, but just rely on the fact each libgcc port knows what newer libgcc deps it needs. e.g. libgcc6 knows it needs libgcc7, and so on. so change gcc libgcc7

 set libgccs "path:lib/libgcc/libgcc_s.1.dylib:libgcc port:libgcc8 port:libgcc7 port:libgcc6”

to just

 set libgccs "path:lib/libgcc/libgcc_s.1.dylib:libgcc  port:libgcc6"

so on newer systems, the libgcc6 will also implicitly bring in libgcc7, libgcc8, and libgcc9, but on older systems it will stop on the last supported.
