Apart from the fact that wine only works on i386, you're confusing
packages and ports.
The command 'pkg_add wine' tells pkg-add to install a package from a
file called 'wine' in the current directory. You can read the manual
page for pkg_add with the command 'man pkg_add'.
/usr/ports/emulators/wine is the ports directory you can use to build
wine. To do so, do the following as root:
make install clean
On an amd64 machine, you'll get an error when running make, because wine
is only for i386.
