Thank you for the pointer. I do find it a bit overkill to setup jails 
and such, just to build a few ports. I was thinking more along the line of;

cd /usr/ports/"random port"

make "it for i386 even if we are building it on amd64, ooh by the way 
build it as a package, and all dependencies as packages as well"

Oh man, man ports. But I do not find the flag 

Can the ports system be (ab)used in that way?
