Nobody asked about universal here, but since you brought it up, curl in MacPorts does build universal for i386 and x86_64 on Snow Leopard. It does not build universal for i386 and ppc on Leopard and Tiger at the moment for at least three different reasons:

The git-core in MacPorts will not build universal because it does not have a universal variant. The port says "use_configure no" which disables the built-in universal variant. A universal variant could quite possibly be added, possibly easily, but this is something someone has to investigate and do. I've filed the following ticket for this request:
