Can you switch from CLang back to gcc in FreeBSD 10.0

I've been dreading this for over a year now. It's going to reach
critical soon. FreeBSD 10 is dropping gcc in favour of Clang (because
the current version of gcc is GPL 3, which is too incompatible with the
BSD license/philosophy - a debate for elsewhere).
gcc is still available in ports, and as it's not having to be part of
the base system, I hope it'll be a newer version.
My question is: Can I dump CLang and replace it with gcc and re-compile
everything once it's installed?
Supplementary question: Does anyone have the runes?
