I uninstalled all ports, and then tried to just install my requested ports, with variants, that I wanted. Almost all were just default and none of these were +universal. But, when it got to install wine-devel, it proceeded to install a whole bunch of +universal ports. The very strange thing is that it was a different set from on my prior machine (the original source for myports.txt) and on the new machine (where things were working, but there were a whole bunch of universal ports, that I didn’t expect were necessary). For example, it built and installed a universal version of ghostscript. And, it tried and failed to build a universal version of texlive-bin. So, just before I uninstalled everything I had wine-devel installed, but it hadn’t needed texlive-bin, or ghostcript (or a whole bunch of others) to be universal. But, now when I build in a different order, it does, and it fails.
So, it seems that the order is critical to install certain ports, both in terms of which dependencies end up being +universal, and if the build can succeed at all!
And, now I don’t know how to get wine, or wine-devel to install. Any ideas?
