Macports download of gcc hangs


Just as the title says - I'm trying to get the newest gcc on my Mac (Yosemite) using Macports. I tested other commands to make sure Macports is working - ex. "port search gcc" works for me.
so, I go to type "sudo port install gcc5" - nothing happens. I try "sudo port install gcc_select" (after seeing this suggested on an answer to a different question on this site) - nothing happens. If I use "top" I see that xcode is very busy doing SOMETHING related to what I have typed, but I let my computer sit ~ 10 minutes and there is no text or anything telling me that Macports is actually doing something...
Help please! I'm a previous Windows user and all of this is very much over my head. I have no idea what could possibly be wrong and I haven't seen this asked anywhere.
