There is an effort in progress to enable compiler "profiles" (for want of
a better word) that will enable people to choose their compiler much the
same way that gcc-config sets the gcc version.

Check, there are patches or partial solutions in there
somewhere. (there could also be a masked version of gcc/gcc-config in
portag, check in packages.mask)

I'm sure your contributions would be welcomed by the devs that are
undertaking this.
