Description

I assumed that this was already possible and was amazed that it wasn't... with this patch, one can set "compiler" in $prefix/etc/macports.conf to choose a default compiler.

I'm thinking it might be good to have a separate config file named something like unsupported.conf for this and other settings that are useful for developers but can cause breakage.

You can simply add a comment in the conf file to warn users that changing this setting could cause problems. Or you can keep the setting hidden so only who know its existance and want to change it (so it should know what is doing) can add the line in the file.
