grub port question

I was going to try to use grub for booting from my multidisk system, as 
I was told that the bootup process is done in i386, then it is 
transfered to 64 bit mode.  So grub works OK.   But last nite I tried to 
install grub from ports and got the message immediately (paraphrasing) 
"that I could not compile a 32 bit application on a 64 bit OS."

So now I'm really confused LOL.
