So, make/build/run a normal jail using the 64 bit os "world", add -m32
to the make.conf CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS, build stuff in the jail, and
copy it to main (non-jailed) system, and run ldconfig on the library
directories? I'd probably also change PREFIX/LOCALBASE to prevent the
files from the ports from colling with the base system files when I
copy them over.
