Comment (by kencu):

 It looks like it's an `i386` specific thing

 One option that appears to work is to not build the examples ( :> )

 in `Makefile.am`, change
 SUBDIRS += tests man doc examples
 SUBDIRS += tests man doc
 and have the port `use_autoreconf yes`

 That builds it `+universal` for me.

 Whether that's an acceptable option for the Portfile remains to be seen.

 For the original poster, if you want to do this:

 you would
 bbedit `port file augeas`
 and add the following line right above the post-destroot block:
 use_autoreconf          yes

 sudo port -v extract augeas
 cd `port work augeas`
 cd a*
 bbedit Makefile.am

 delete the "examples" word in the `SUBDIRS` line as above, save the file.

 and then
 cd /
 sudo port -v install augeas
 and if it works like mine did, it's going to install.

 We can ask Ryan if he accepts this into the `Portfile`, and if so, it's a
 one-second patch and one line to the `Portfile` (but then everyone has to
 `autoreconf` and nobody builds examples, not that I suspect anyone would
