Comment (by kencu):

 Confirmed -- the `+universal` build of `fribidi` is broken. Adding
 `PortGroup muniversal 1.0` does not fix it, unfortunately.

 For John -- you have a great many ports installed as `+universal` -- this
 is likely to be frustrating for you in the longer term, as you have to
 build everything yourself (ugh) and some ports don't build `+universal`,
 as you can see.

 I'm not sure how it came to pass that you have so many `+universal` ports
 -- I presume you didn't do that on purpose. But getting rid of the
 "+universal virus" as we sometimes call it can be tedious.

 I would be tempted to start going through your installed ports, activating
 non-universal variants and uninstalling the +universal ones, and cancel
 out any rev-upgrades until you're all finished. If you can get rid of
 every +universal variant, your life will be happier.
