Hmm, sounds like a lot of work for just one small binary.  I just  
pulled the binary out of the pkg, and get info on it, and it says it  
is a Intel file.

$lipo -info memtester
Non-fat file: memtester is architecture: i386

I also just uninstalled and then `sudo port install memtester  
$lipo -info memtester
Non-fat file: memtester is architecture: i386

I suspect this has to do with:
DEBUG: not using configure, so not adding the default universal variant

I am probably getting in over my head on this one, but would like to  
hear some suggestions.
