Ken, I don't like all this complaining. You brought up this thread because apparently you believe this portgroup is no longer needed in this port. If so, remove it, and take responsibility for fixing anything that breaks as a result. You already know this would cause an i386/ppc universal build to be wrong. You claim such a build is no longer possible anyway. In that case, ensure that the universal variant is not offered (or emits an error) in that situation.
