pulseaudio install fails

I did a (somewhat overdue, thus lengthy ...) `port upgraded outdated' yesterday and ran into some 
hickups most of which went away after forced uninstalling of affected packages and dependencies and 
reinstalling them afterwards.

however I cannot manage to get `pulseaudio' to install again (a dependency of `surf'). from the log 

  2347 :info:configure checking whether C compiler accepts -std=gnu11... no
    2348 :info:configure configure: error: *** Compiler does not support -std=gnu11
    2349 :info:configure Command failed:  cd 
   2349 udio_pulseaudio/pulseaudio/work/pulseaudio-14.2" && ./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/local 
--with-mac-version-min=10.15 --with-caps --with-soxr --with-speex    2349 --disable-silent-rules

--disable-systemd-journal --enable-neon-opt=no --enable-orc   2349  --enable-adrian-aec 
    2350 :info:configure Exit code: 1

so the `-std=gnu11' compiler flag is not recognized it seems..

this happens with 10.15.7, Xcode 12.4 and I did `xcode-select --install' when asked to do so by 
`ports' when running `port install surf'.

what am I missing? e.g., I have lost track of whether there are still issues with which 
xcode/developer tools version to use with 10.15.7 and whether I did one update too much of those or
