You didn't mention that you want to build a i386-only port. The easiest way to circumvent that restriction is to down- load the i386 package of that port and install it. Whether you can make that work depends on what kind of port it is. If you tell us *what* software you're actualy trying to install, we might be able to provide further assistance.
