I can't explain that. That shouldn't be possible. wine-devel has a library dependency on gst-plugins-base which has a library dependency on gnome-vfs which has a library dependency on gconf which has a library dependency on gtk2. Except wine-devel, all of them have universal variants and none of them are 32-bit-only. If you originally installed them using MacPorts 1.9.0 or later, MacPorts should have upgraded them to universal when you installed wine-devel.
