Ticket #16831 (closed defect: duplicate)
octave gcc43 variant installs g95

10.5.5 (intel MBP), Macports 1.600, recently selfupdate'd.
When installing octave, even with the +gcc43 variant, the g95 package is still installed. gcc43 provides gfortran by default, and gfortran should be used to compile any fortran files required for octave or its dependencies (yes? if not, why...?).
g95 ends up eating disk space needlessly, and if uninstalled and then octave is upgraded, g95 attempts to reinstall itself.
solution: make octave and/or its dependencies build with the full F95 compliant gfortran compiler.
