Is Gnome2 not supported on the amd64 ARCH?

 I installed fresh from the 8.1-RELEASE DVD, and
cvsupped 8.1 src && ports-CURRENT 2 days ago.
My target wm for this box is x11-wm/icewm
But I chose to install x11/gnome2-lite && x11/kde4-lite
beforehand because I like some of the applications they
So I started with gnome2-lite immediately after finishing
cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg make && make install.
The gnome2-lite make failed @ devel/libgtop (libgtop-2.28.2)
with the following (from config.log):

It was created by libgtop configure 2.28.2, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.67.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --disable-gtk-doc --with-html-dir=/usr/local/share/doc
--prefix=/usr/local --mandir=/usr/local/man --infodir=/usr/local/info/

As you can see, it complains about amd64 (x86-64). :(

Thank you for all your time ans consideration.
