hi,

i've recently upgraded a laptop from 10.11 to mojave (10.14) and followed the
instructions for macports migration and ran into some troubles.

at first, i changed my macports.conf to put i386 back into the universal_archs
variable but later found out that xcode (i guess) no longer supports compiling
for i386 so i changed it back to the default.

restore_ports.tcl had trouble processing my myports.txt file becaise it
included some universal ports with i386.

i thought deleting the i386 from archs='x86_64 i386' in myports.txt would fix
it but it didn't. now i get errors that say:

  Error: Requested variants "" do not match those the build was started with: 
"+universal".
  Error: Please use the same variants again, or run 'port clean ncurses' first 
to remove the existing partially completed build.
  Error: See 
/opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_devel_ncurses/ncurses/main.log
 for details.

i then notied that those ports in myports.txt also inluded "+universal"
so i deleted that. i also deleted the non-active ports.

i think it still got the same errors as above. so i uninstalled all installed
ports and then tried to just installed the ports listed in my requested.txt
file one at a time. i started with MavVim and got this output:

  Error: Follow https://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets to report a bug.
  Error: Processing of port MacVim failed

there was a similar error for libiconv at some point.

any idea what i need to do? as far as i know, i didn't start the build with 
"+universal"
as it claims. note that this isn't using myports.txt or requested.txt. i just 
tried
to install the MacVim port manually.

the .../ncurses/main.log file that mentions contains:

  ...

which i don't understand because i removed i386 from universal_archs.
my macports.conf is identical to the new default version.

it's as though the earlier version of my macports.conf is somehow cached
somewhere and still having an effect.

cheers,
raf
