No, don't think so. My macports.conf has 

build_arch         x86_64

near the top -- I installed macports two years ago. I can't recall at the moment if I added that at some point in the past, or if macports did that on the install. I think macports did it...

Leave it as macports installed it.

Most likely because clang-3.3 was still around somehow, and clang-3.4 was not.

This should not be the case when you do a clean install.

Hope this is helpful and not confusing.
