I think the only difference as a i386 jail is that the libraries are
built 32bit, and setting of certain environment variables to tell
uname to return i386, and possibly some make variables in make.conf to
specify the CPUTYPE or ARCH.  These won't affect how the 64bit kernel
acts---you are still using the same kernel.
