Many linux ports needing update to support amd64

It seems the majority of Linux ports are still designated as
"ONLY_FOR_ARCHS=i386". Now that we have 32-bit Linux emulation for
amd64, isn't it time we updated these ports to reflect this?
Yesterday I installed the new Realplayer 10 port, but it required a lot
of editing of dependent ports' Makefiles, which was quite tedious. I
eventually got Realplayer installed, and it's working, but all this
manual fudging of Makefiles needs to be done away with.
Is anyone currently looking at this problem?
