Hello list

I want to build packages from ports on AMD64 for use on i386
since the i386 system is;

pid 21629 (cc1plus), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space

When building firefox.

Added some swap as a file so it's building as I type.

Thinking that the AMD system I can access is a wee more powerfull
than the i386, I was thinking in the line of;

Build the port on amd64 and install it on i386 as a package.

Is it possible? Pointers? Handholding? How-to?

This is the i386;
