gcc9 works just fine on 10.14 so whatever you did to get into the state above,

A few comments.

- Did you *really* correctly follow the migration instructions at



as I am not sure how you could get into such a mess if you had. Did you really 
remove *all* ports in order to reinstall them ?

- When you get errors like those above, you have to look into the log file that 
is referenced. e.g.

> Error: Failed to configure gdbm, consult 
> /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_databases_gdbm/gdbm/work/gdbm-1.18.1/config.log

Honestly, the simplest solution might be to start again, as if you are doing an 
OS migration. So follow the instructions above, making sure to remove 

I would also suggest *not* just blinding reinstalling everything you previously

> sudo port sync
> sudo port install gcc9

that, should work just fine. Then you can go from there adding what else you
