I tried this a while ago with a chroot. I installed 7.0-RELEASE/i386
there, and built ports inside the chroot. You need to also do a few
things to trick things like libtool (and other auto* tools) that your
arch is i386 and not amd64. From memory, I think you need to:

env UNAME_m=i386 make ...

For what it's worth, I got wine (and all depends) built, but it did
not work. It is likely I made a mistake along the way, of course. I
believe the resulting binary was generating a SIGABRT.

Naturally, if you have success doing this, it might be worth
publishing the (excruciating) details.
