Despite ticket 22815 there seems no longer any universal option within wxWidgets to unselect, so might building non-universal depend on that I should try any or all of

1) going back and uninstalling / reinstalling python26 *without* selecting +universal

2) installing wxWidgets 2.8.9 selecting +nonmonolithic
	not that I am creating anything in Xcode, but...  ...

3) does the caveat to install libsdl "with the correct architectures" (ticket 22815) remain, and how to do that given its portfile seems to define no user-selectable architecture options... must one reconfigure (or alter) something else in one's port system?

4) retrying py26-wxpython after (1) and (2)?
	if successful, would this help close ticket 19583 ?

5) I saw an (unofficial ??) wxWidgets 2.9.0 at the following URL but is any diff against 2.8.9 inconsequential and was is a misposting that needs correction?
