First, I must say I love the ports system!!! It keeps me from suffering as I am now. :)

Anyway, I'm attempting to install a web log analysis software from Google named "Urchin". The installation docs say it's supported on FBSD 6.2+. As I am dedicating a machine to this software, I've performed a brand new install of 7.1-PRERELEASE. I'm using the amd64 version on a Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

With help from the list, I overcame the first library issue by installing the compat6x libraries from ports. Now the install script is complaining that "/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libncurses.so.6" not found". I used ldd on the executable the script is attempting to run and get this output:

       libncurses.so.6 => not found (0x0)
       libcrypt.so.3 => /usr/local/lib32/compat/libcrypt.so.3 (0x280be000)
       libz.so.3 => /usr/local/lib32/compat/libz.so.3 (0x280d7000)
libstdc++.so.5 => /usr/local/lib32/compat/libstdc++.so.5 (0x280e8000)
       libm.so.4 => /usr/local/lib32/compat/libm.so.4 (0x281be000)
       libc.so.6 => /usr/local/lib32/compat/libc.so.6 (0x281d4000)

I did search my system and found /usr/local/lib/compat/libncurses.so.6. I tried adding a symlink to /usr/local/lib32/compat but then received an "...unsupported layout..." error when attempting to run the executable: I assume that is because the libncurses.so.6 library is a 64 bit version? I've removed the symlink.

Assuming my assumptions are correct, how can I get a 32 bit libncurses.so.6 version on my system? Or if I'm wrong, what do I need?

The lib/compat/libncurses.so.6 file comes from the compat6x package. However, as you found, that package on amd64 installs the amd64 compat libraries. You can grab the i386 version of the package from the FTP site and manually extract the libraries into the lib32/compat directory (it's just a .tbz file).
