`port variants`, which you ran, shows the variants as they’d be chosen for the command. Since there are no + or - shown, no variants will be chosen or disabled by default.

You can always be explicit about your variants, even if they’re defaults:
sudo port PORTNAME -thing +other

Are you sure you need +universal? or was it just an example? For a universal binary of fontforge:
sudo port install fontforge +universal
