It will not work with Amber. I put together a Wiki describing how to set
up a Mac for use with Amber (which
includes instructions regarding the command-line tools as well, in addition
to activating the correct xcode versions and using MacPorts).

You will need to use the MacPorts-generated compilers. It may be that
upgrading Xcode tools will necessitate recompiling all of your ports, but
that has not been true in my experience.
