Comment (by ryandesign):

 Recall when I said:

 Replying to [comment:1 ryandesign]:

 require additional changes beyond just adding the portgroup.

 The portfile says:

     configure.env-append \
         PERL_EXT_CFLAGS=[get_canonical_archflags cc] \
         PERL_EXT_LDFLAGS=[get_canonical_archflags ld]

 I don't think this can work correctly with the muniversal portgroup.

 And you've included the portgroup conditionally. It can be hard enough to
 make a port build correctly without the muniversal portgroup, or with the
 muniversal portgroup, but making a port work correctly whether or not the
 portgroup is included is an additional challenge. I don't know if we've
 attempted to do that in any other ports but it seems like unnecessary
 extra difficulty.
