No no, the cmake portgroup (which libomp uses) sets architectures correctly, and x86_64 is the default on Snow Leopard and later. But if you want to install a C++-using port universal, libcxx will need to be universal, and MacPorts won't ensure that because libcxx isn't listed as a dependency of every C++-using port. And libomp is being built universal because its universal variant defaults to on, which was done because of

Oh of course, I didn't see the dependencies because I was looking at the port on a newer OS. Thanks, this should help.
