First of all, you posted this question earlier today. Do not send multiple 
copies of the same message to the list, certainly not within a few hours of 
each other.

Secondly, cvsup will currently build on AMD64 because it was fixed for this 
platform a couple months ago. You apparently have an older ports collection 
than this. You then have two options: 1. install cvsup as a package rather 
than a port, 2. download the tarball with the entire ports collection 
(ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz), delete your 
current /usr/ports, and untar this file to make a new ports directory.
