The bug report is about inability to build 32-bit on a 64-bit system, and was fixed.

Let's hope it's not broken again ...

... because I am trying to test the universal build right now on a 64bit system, and my first attempt to circumvent the 64bit build *) failed apparently the `-arch i386` flags set by the macx-clang-32 spec got lost on most components of libQt5Bootstrap.a
*) `port configure qt5-mac-devel +universal` followed by `(cd `port work qt5-mac-devel`/build-i386; wmake --MP)` with wmake just a script that applies the same environment as MacPorts does. 

You were right, the universal arch. build order is determined in macports.conf, but so far doing things "correctly" using `port build` leads to the same error.
