It was as trivial as cloning the ports tree and setting CONFIGURE_ARGS += --disable-assembly. Now, to get on with actually writing the program I wanted to write 😂
@will Sounds like Altivec, which G4 and up support, IIRC not many things do runtime detection, so packages break on G3 because of it. I'm not sure what the ports policy is these days, but I wouldn't be surprised if having the best performance on the G4 was what was considered.
@brynet seems like a sensible policy. There are some more fine-tuned options I could change rather than disabling it all - when I can be bothered to wait for another compilation I'll find out! :')
