I can confirm that your email is making it to the list, anyway...

Trying to build -CURRENT with a compiler from a port rather than with the 
default compiler is a wizard-mode operation (unfortuantely).  I suspect that 
you would have better luck tracking RELENG_5_2 or RELENG_4.

If you want to experiment with a gcc from ports, try rebuilding a specific 
application and benchmarking that before trying to do so with the entire 
world.  If you wanted to perform a broader test, consider recompiling KDE and X11.

It is not clear to me what problem you are trying to solve by the activities 
you are pursuing: perhaps you ought to install 5.2.1 or 4.9 from a .iso image 
and get on with other tasks, and revisit the issue of recompiling world later?
