I just migrated from 32bit FreeBSD to amd64 and realised that the 
tightvnc-port wasnt supported.

A helpful guy called  Tsurutani Naoki <turutani at> 
provided me some patches

and thightvnc did compile. Unfortunately Xvnc craches almost every day 
so its almost useless for me.

Question: Will tightvnc be supported for amd64 FreeBSD in the near future?

I had no problems with 32bit FreeBSD so I am seriously considering going 
back to 32bit, but its a bit of work to reinstall...
