this has been fixed in the latest commit to base master [42b36f4ae65e27b1824dd34c9fc23c022caa61e3/macports-base].

You can add it manually yourself, or install base from git master, or leave everything broken and wait for MacPorts 2.6.2...

More of us need to be involved in MacPorts base development!

In ca1d0a6870b7e22aa54f44c0bab4b2a870173db1/macports-ports (master):

faac: use macports-gcc on ppc

Fixes: #59225

Well, that's faac, but there are dozens and dozens of other ports that have blacklisted *gcc-3.* *gcc-4.*.

I know, because I blacklisted most of them.

Since I already have macports installed via the pkg installer, what is the best way for me to switch to the git version? Should I uninstall macports, along with all my installed ports, and then follow the normal instructions for installing from git, or is there a less painful way?

It takes only a few minutes, and you don't have to uninstall anything.

Clone the current base repo, and install from there, like this (from memory):

cd ~/Downloads
git clone https://github.com/macports/macports-base.git
cd macports-base
./configure && make && sudo make install
make clean

and you're on your way.

If you're using my /opt/bootstrap SSL enhancement method, don't forget to add those configure args. If you don't know what I'm talking about, that's a topic for another day.

In this case, it's probably easier to just apply that change to /opt/local/libexec/macports/lib/port1.0/portconfigure.tcl. That way you can still selfupdate when we release new versions, rather than being stuck on master until 2.7.0.
