So, I verified variants installed, and all ports whom apache2 depends are build with universal variant.

But there seems to be a problem with libaprutil : 

command "port installed apr" returns : "apr @1.3.9_0+universal (active)"
command "port installed apr-util" returns : "apr-util @1.3.9_0+universal (active)"

command "file /opt/local/lib/libapr-" returns :
/opt/local/lib/libapr- Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures
/opt/local/lib/libapr- (for architecture x86_64):  Mach-O 64-bit dynamically linked shared library x86_64
/opt/local/lib/libapr- (for architecture i386):    Mach-O dynamically linked shared library i386


command "file /opt/local/lib/libaprutil-" only returns :
/opt/local/lib/libaprutil- Mach-O 64-bit dynamically linked shared library x86_64

So, even if apr-util is installed with "universal" variant, it supports only x86_64 architecture, and when I try to install apache2, it doesn't find certain symbols in libaprutil for i386 architecture.

But, since my iMac has a x86_64 architecture, I don't need apache2 build for i386 ; so I edited /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf and changed "universal_archs                x86_64 i386" to "universal_archs                x86_64", and it worked. 

I have yet installed apache2.

But this doesn't explain why apr-util isn't installed for i386 architecture, even with "universal" variant. (how does it work on i386 machines ?)
