sysutils/cdrtools in i386 chroot on amd64

I am trying to build all ports that I have installed in an i386 chroot 
environment on an amd64 machine. All work except for sysutils/cdrtools.

I have installed an i386 system to some directory, mounted a devfs to 
the devfs subdirectory, set "MACHINE=i386 ; UNAME_p=i386 ; UNAME_m=i386" 
and exported them, chrooted to the directory, and called 
"/etc/rc.d/ldconfig start".

sysutils/cdrtools fails with many errors as it still builds for amd64.

Is this expected? Should I do more to get an i386 environment? (I have 
tried to set ARCH and MACHINE_ARCH with no change.)

sysutils/cdrtools/Makefile mentions: "Hack to allow building with TARGET 
and TARGET_ARCH set in the environment as done by the release building 
scripts." This seems to be the problem as all the variables I set cannot 
have an effect. How can I work around that hack except for changing the 

Could the port detect if it is called from the release building scripts 
and only apply the hack in that case?
