Reinstalling ports from a Port Archive

Everything should be the same in regards to variants...versions I
can't be certain of, since I don't know the release schedule for
individual ports. I decided to start fresh, but took some time to
research all of the possible variants, picked which one's I needed
based on what they added to the ports I use/need...and added them to

I'm gonna give +universal another go, instead of letting the port's
default arch getting built.

So far so good.
