Xorg fails with "Hi, my name is xorg / I am broken and looking for someone to fix me ..."

I ran 'sudo port -dv selfupdate' about 30 minutes before posting this bug. Then I tried to install xorg. It failed, so I ran 'sudo port clean --all xorg' and then tried again. No effect. The output is below:

$ sudo port -vd install xorg DEBUG: Found port in file:///opt/local/var/db/dports/sources/rsync.rsync.darwinports.org_dpupdate_dports/x11/xorg DEBUG: Changing to port directory: /opt/local/var/db/dports/sources/rsync.rsync.darwinports.org_dpupdate_dports/x11/xorg DEBUG: Requested variant powerpc is not provided by port xorg.

The "I am broken message is informational" and not a bug; though the port's being broken is a bug, we've chosen to deal with it for now by telling people to use Apple's X11 so I've modified the message to tell people what to do if they encounter this message.
