This is a binary port, so its hard to "do" something with it if it
doesn't work. :-)
Looking at the port and the web page, it looks like the FreeBSD version
is compiled for FreeBSD 5.x.
I guess that implies that the compat5x-i386 port is needed, and I don't
know if that can be made to run under amd64.

Perhaps you could ask the author to compile a version for FreeBSD 6 /
