I have been looking at the possibility of running sketchup on a freebsd 7.2-p3 
system. One solution would to run it under wine which is the way linux tackles 
the problem. However the emulators/wine currently only compiles for i386.

Can anyone solve this challenge. In any case it would be good to have wine 
available in the ports tree for amd64 as well as i386.

I am sure there used to be an i386 emulator for amd64 but maybe I am imagining 

Maybe there are alternative solutions.

Thanks in advance for your comments
