The list in MacPorts base only comes into effect if the user doesn't have a ports tree yet, so yes, this change will make it into 2.6.1, but no, there's no urgent need to release 2.6.1 just for this.

The change in base though really should not be being used I would think. The logic there is only used if the file port1.0/compilers/gcc_dependencies.tcl
in the ports tree is missing. Surely by now everyone has this, so I would have assumed the logic in base is now really not used (I almost did not bother to make the change there because of this).
Because of this, its not at all clear to me what hack Riccardo could have done to make things work...
