Some ports are restricted in a way that they can only be built
for specific architectures. Not everything is "cross-platform
compatible". :-) For example, some ports will only work on i386
and amd64 because they contain assembly code that is only supported
on those two architectures, and _not_ on, let's say, arm or ppc.


For I'd say the best
list to ask specific questions probably is the freebsd-ports
mailing list.
