But, the strange thing is that gcc6 has no dependents, and I didn’t explicitly install it. So, I’m not sure what caused it to be installed. And, on the new machine it, and the chain down, installed +universal, while on the older machine it installed the default variant. Both computers installed gcc6 6.2.0_2.

Thanks that helps. It is a step in the right direction, but still leaves my question about what generates all the extra universal builds on the new machine, when the old machine had mostly default.
For example, on the new machine the above shows that py27-numpy has two installs, with the active one being +universal. So, the migrate script first installed it default, then due to yet another port, must have rebuilt it +universal. But, I don’t know how to trace those back to the root of it.
Perhaps the least effort would be to remove +universal completely from myports.txt then uninstall everything, and then reinstall with the migrate script? Would anything that needs to be universal then end up getting put back that way?
