It's not and fc (port) issue, it's rather kernel's one
(linux.osrelease 2.4.2 vs 2.6.16 emulation). The default is 2.4.2 even
for CURRENT (but mat change soon). And when the default
linux.osrelease is changed at CURRENT some time will pass before
something like f8 (or even f9) may become a default linux emulation

FreeBSD doesn't have 64-bit linux emulation, it's 32-bit for now.
And afaik no one is working on it.
