>> It looks like kdegames4 @4.6.0 needs gcc4.4 or newer [1], which isn't a big deal in it's own: dependencies atlas/numpy make use of it as well. Unfortunately the current build setup passes -arch to the macports-gcc-4.4.

I mean doing nothing special: using the Portfile as-is with configure.compiler set to macports-gcc-4.4.

Then I'd be left assuming something in CMake might be forcing this then, or perhaps flags for CMake in Qt/KDE PortGroups.

KDEGames4 already says no to universal :-)
