I have been running 9.0 amd64 for nearly 12 months, I think it was about 
february that I compiled my system with clang and no 32 bit libs. With 
the default install there is a small catch that the lib32 folder still 
gets created even though it is empty. Ports only check the existence of 
the folder to try to build 32 bit libs and therefore fail. valgrind is 
an example of that.
Simply deleting the lib32 folder solves that. (pr/165175)

I vaguely recall being surprised that one of the emulators was only 
32bit (may be fixed by now) I haven't had any other issues since 
deleting the lib32 folder.
