The resolution of ticket added -arch flag support to nss, but not a universal variant. Without a universal variant for nss, there cannot be one for ports like xulrunner that depend on nss.

I once looked into adding a universal variant to nss but gave up. The port needs to use different build flags for different architectures, which means it needs to use the muniversal portgroup. However it also overrides the build and destroot phases, which the muniversal portgroup does not support.

Install xulrunner without the universal variant.

sudo port install xulrunner -universal
