lang/julia call for testing

I just found the official doc points to gcc6 as one of depends:

Julia only use the fortran compiler in gcc, do not need the c compiler.
But seems the Uses/ do not accept any argument to change the
gcc version. If I change the gcc version via USE_GCC=6, it changes CC
as well. As previous remarks, Julia only need the fortran compiler of gcc.
There are some side effects that we do not want from USE_GCC.

I think this is a flaw in ports framework. Any idea?
