This is not a MacPorts issue per-se, but rather a known problem with building 32 bit programs on Snow Leopard. You did exactly what is needed to build 32 bit variants. This is one of the reasons I have not switched from Leopard, as Leopard builds are 32 bit.

You stated you have WineBottler. The builds for it are done on Leopard (maybe even Tiger) and are completely 32 bit and require no external programs.
The only other suggestion is to completely remove WineBottler AND MacPorts Wine and rebuild Wine from MacPorts with the +universal variant.
As to why your .wine is not working, I suggest looking at WineBottler first to see if the bottle exists in it. If it does, delete it from there and then attempt to run
wine winecfg from terminal to see if the bottle will be recreated. In my testing with WineBottler, no Wine bottle was corrupted using it.
Hopefully, this will fix the problem.
