I suppose it's naive to think that some tool like portupgrade could be bent to build all the depends with -m32 as well? I guess you'd wind up with a bunch of things you didn't want as 32-bit (i.e. XOrg?) being re-installed as 32bit, right? I don't suppose there's any infrastructure for simultaneously installing two versions of a port (one of the reasons BSD doesn't crash as much as win32, no doubt, and that we don't usually have .dll/.so hell)...still I might settle for a 32-bit X if I could have 64-bit disk & network still...
