universe gets called by tinderbox. From Makefile:

  6 # universe            - *Really* build *everything* (buildworld and
  7 #                       all kernels on all architectures).
  8 # tinderbox           - Same as universe, but presents a list of failed build
  9 #                       targets and exits with an error if there were any.
