What ports tree to use on a Raspberry Pi?

I thought these were generic so I've got the I386 tree installed.
Running Release 10 and the tree from that. Some things work OK but
then I tried to install misc/mc which requires libgcrypt which
requires GCC 4.6, which won't build on arm cpus.

I can maybe fudge this but doubtless there will be others.  I'm
surprised it happened, that something in some database the ports tree
was put together from didn't pick this up and flag it.

I mostly run OpenBSD, but there's no Pi support in that.
