--- Comment #15 from Felix Palmen <zirias@freebsd.org> ---
Actually, a policy about ARCH restrictions is: Only restrict them if the
software is *known* to be broken on some arch.

But then, this new port would (attempt to) build on any arch.

You added ONLY_FOR_ARCHS to the *upstream* Makefile, where nothing would ever
care about it. It's a variable of FreeBSD's port building framework, so only
does anything in a port Makefile.

Still I wonder why you insist on restricting anything? I gave you a simple
example above how you could have your SSE2-dependent stuff on only amd64 and
still have it build on any other arch. And if you want to take one step
further, you can still add a port option enabling SSE2 on i386 as well, it just
can't be on by default because official packages must run fine on any CPU of
the respective ARCH.
