Comment (by JohnFHall):

 Replying to [comment:8 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.
 The suggestion to remove univrsal was going well, until I got to wine (or
 wine-devel). Even though I tried the -univeral to the build, as well as
 having -universal in /opt/local/etc/macport/variant.cond, wine stubbonly
 build with + universal, and rebulds its dependent with +universal, undoig
 most of the work I had done,. Bugger. I've opened a ticker #58025 for
 wine., but I'm not hopeful of action.

 At least I know where all the +universal bilds came from.

 Thank you for your help.
