Not since head r263312, which I also merged to stable/10 and stable/9 in
r263765.  Just comment the USE_GCC line in editors/emacs/Makefile.

If you build with a gcc port, the program will require the gcc runtime
support (e.g. libgcc, libstdc++) of that particular version.  Usually it
is installed in /usr/local/lib/gccXY.

Currently there do not seem to be any separate 'gccXY-libs' ports.  I am
not sure if that will come to pass, as many people appear to loathe this
kind of separated packages... :)
