sudo port -f uninstall installed

Ports that can be built universal will be built universal. Ports that cannot be built universal and indicate that they cannot build universal will not build universal. wine, for example, already knows to build itself 32-bit even on 64-bit Macs, provided the dependencies are already installed 32-bit or universal.
