Sorry, I realize now the section I just snipped showed that you tried  
the +no_bdb variant and encountered other errors. I don't know why;  
it works fine for me, with MacPorts 1.4.42, Xcode 2.4.1, Mac OS X  
10.4.9, Intel Core 2 Duo, with the universal variant or without. Your  
ports tree is up to date? "sudo port sync"?

db44 installed fine for me, both universal and not.
