There are a handful of ports that have 64-bit issues, but they are 
getting cleaned up gradually.

The only major bottleneck I have as of today is one perl module, 
IO::Interface, which will compile, but when run return empty data 
rather than proper lists.  I'm sure it has to do with 64-bittedness, 
since it works on i386 FreeBSD 5.3.  I'll track that down and fix it 
sooner or later...
