port mpkg and variants: failure

Trying to get mpkg to work wit a large meta MacPorts port, but it seems 
to want to recompile dependent ports with no default variants.

$ cat /opt/local-10.7-2012-08/etc/macports/variants.conf
+bash_completion +dbus +doc +hdri +huge +icu +jbig +jpeg2 +nls +openldap 
+openssl +pear +perl5_12 +pcre +postgresql92 +python +python27 +svn +ssl 
+tools +ucs4

Running 'port mpkg apr-util' tries to rebuild icu without the +doc 
variant, which I don't want.  However, 'port pkg apr-util' works and it 
unpacks the binary archive containing the +openldap variant.

Any ideas?
