Standard gcc does not have this ability; instead, you have to "gcc -arch i386", then "gcc -arch x86_64", then "lipo" manually. For ports that require a non-Apple gcc compiler, universal builds are probably possible using the muniversal portgroup, which does this build-and-lipo method.

FSF GCC does not accept -arch at all.
