Hello Ryan,

This is what I meant, or at least tried to express. +universal will  
be available to all ports unless they specify "universal_variant no".  
And universal variant code will have no effect (except listing this  
variant as available) unless users select +universal. The default  
behavior *of the universal variant* is to configure with universal  

Please feel free to correct the wording to make the man page easier  
to understand.
