What is this "current build setup"?

MacPorts base should already know not to pass -arch flags to compilers that don't know how to handle them, as long as you're specifying the compiler by using configure.compiler. See proc portconfigure::arch_flag_supported in portconfigure.tcl:


Using a MacPorts gcc compiler, and thus losing support for -arch flags, means lots of fun for supporting universal variants.
