* gcc-4.7 must be used, as some dependencies are no longer supported by gcc-4.5. To look for ports using a <code>gcc45</code> variant, type <code>port rdeps gcc45</code> at the terminal's command line.

* The <code>sudo port mdmg octave-devel @3.6.4+atlas+docs+fltk+gcc47</code> command fails when bundling the <code>xorg-libx11</code> port.  Review the output of the command <code>port rdeps octave-devel @3.6.4+atlas+fltk+gcc47-x11+no_x11-metis</code> to identify the ports whose variants must be modified to avoid <code>gcc45</code> and <code>xorg-libx11</code>.  There is one dependency (<code>Transfig</code>) for which <code>x11</code> is not optional.  To resolve this, the <code>octave-devel</code> Portfile must be modified and the <code>Transfig</code> run-time dependency removed. This means that Xfig output is not available using Octave's <code>print()</code> function/command.
