I think both of these simply mask the real problem. I still don't 
understand how only some of the list items get "rebuilt". The CR says

"These targets will only be run for the last item in the xxx_LIST 
variables (which happens to be the client jvm)"

but I don't understand why that is?

But I also don't understand this universalization process.

BTW you might want to run this past the bsd-port folks (don't recall the 
exact alias) and/or build-dev. I seem to recall that last time we 
changed something to do with universal builds it actually broke something.
