FreeBSD [redacted] 8.0-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p2 #2: Fri Jan 29 16:34:31 CST 2010     root at aurora.indefi.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/[custom-redacted]  amd64
RAR support (disabled by default) is marked within security/amavisd-new/Makefile as requiring 32-bit libraries, but this is not immediately obvious from 'make config'.  This should probably be immediately apparent within the list of options.
On amd64 and in ${PORTS}/security/amavisd-new:

    1) 'make config'
    2) Select "RAR support with archivers/rar" option.
    3) 'make'
Document option as 32-bit only from the menu.  Proposed patch attached.
