Just to complete the thread here on the list, in case anyone was  
waiting for the resolution:

I worked around the problem for ports that depend on XFree86 by  
deleting its nonfunctional universal variant. See #12137.

I filed new tickets for what I believe to be bugs in base; I don't  
think I would have run into the original problem if those issues in  
base didn't exist. See #12169 (MacPorts shouldn't evaluate variants  
of non-required dependencies) and #12170 (the default +universal  
variant shouldn't appear in ports where we know it won't work).
