Like this?
===>   opera-8.51.20051114 depends on shared library: c_r.4 - not found
===>    Verifying install for c_r.4 in /usr/ports/misc/compat4x
===>  compat4x-amd64-5.3_2 in unsupported (FreeBSD 4.x did not run on
this architecture).

Opera requires the compat4x port (because it is compiled for FreeBSD
4.6, I think), but the compat4x port isn't supprted on the amd64
platform. Like the message tells you.

I guess you can't.
Or, you can ask the Opera people (again and again and...) to provide an
updated Opera for current versions of FreeBSD. Yes, on all supported
platforms please.
