Someone (cough Dan cough) noticed me saying on IRC one of the things I
missed after shifting my home machine from i386 to amd64 was Opera.  He
pointed me at this:

which it turned out was very simple to install (I needed to build
x11-toolkits/qt33, and just ran the that was packaged in the
Opera download).

He suggested I send this to see if someone familiar with the Opera ports
would be interested in packaging this up into a real port.  That URL is
pretty hard to find.  I had tried checking Opera's site with firefox
when I initially got the amd64 machine running but I took their
short-cut to look for an Opera version to download on their homepage
which mistakenly took me to the i386 version for FreeBSD.  I didn't dig
any farther than that until Dan gave me the URL above.
