building 32bit port on AMD64 (mplayer)

Hi all,


I am using FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE AMD64.


I would need to build /ports/multimedia/mplayer (and I suppose its
dependencies) in a 32-bit version. This because certain options (win32
codec support) doesn't work on the 64bit version.


How is this done?


Is it also possible to have the 64bit and 32bit version coexist? I hope
the 64bit version works faster but I'm not sure...


A big thanks.

Jan Catrysse
