Wildly different numbers of portsnap updates between i386 and amd64?

The update is a delta from what is already on your system. When you
updated the older box, you pulled in lots of changes to get it
current. The newer box needed fewer updates to get current.

Or something is wrong. You can always delete the contents of /ports
and the database in /var/db/portsnap. Then just portsnap fetch &&
portsnap extract. You will get a fresh ports tree.
