No doubt I do not yet fully enough understand what I am doing :-)

Apologies that you pointed me to this 5 days ago, and I misread the returned "1" to mean "just" 32-bit, whereas it actually meant 64 bit

Does it mean that if I would like Mac-native rather than X11*and* if the medical software I's like to use will need
(which needs wxWidgets-python which for carbon is only i386)
then it is still possible to build 32 bit, but I need to uninstall MacPorts, and would set build_arch to i386 and maybe re-use the workarounds mentioned including
sudo port -d install cairo +no_x11 +quartz gtk2 +no_x11 +quartz
and would setting build_arch thusly impose on me cautions in using MacPorts, e.g. avoid trying to install anything Universal?
Thanks so much -- Jim
