Can you paste the config.log from the port's work source directory
(where configure is located)?

Can you try the following and see if it compiles?

echo '#include <stdio.h>\nint main(void){ printf("hello world!\\n");
return 0;}\n' > t.c ; gcc t.c -o t; ./t; rm t.c

You should either see:

hello world!

Or some compiler errors/warnings/etc.
