MacPorts produces platform-native binaries. There is no way to
produce universal binaries. For many projects, it is a simple matter
to produce universal binaries. However, some projects need to be
handled specially, so MacPorts cannot provide a guaranteed way of
automatically building universal binaries of all software. A very few
ports provide a +universal variant.
