Eh? The instructions from the Manifesto should give you plain gcc-4.2  
executables, not gcc-apple-4.2. I think you may have used to incorrect  
portfile (i.e. the one included with macports and not the one from the  
trac ticket). The macports apple-gcc42 port, last I checked, doesn't  
build c++ compilers (so you'll get a gcc-apple-4.2 for instance, but  
no g++-apple-4.2

I'm guessing that you have +universal somewhere in you variants.
If you're installing from macports though, macports' curses not the  
system's should be used. Seems like you're doing something funky. And  
without more output from the error, I can't help you.
