32-bit DragonFly 3.7 and dports

There are no binary packages built for dports, on DragonFly 3.7, for 32-bit machines, at this time.  Pierre Abbat found this out.  You can build from source, of course, or just use 3.6 packages.  Don’t forget -DBATCH to avoid getting asked for build options when building from source.

    Do you mean x86? x32 is used to distinguish a different ABI (which is basically x86-64 with 32-bit pointers) as far I’m aware: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X32_ABI

    This can lead to some confusion e.g. googling for x32 will yield results for DragonFly BSD, which I don’t think supports this.

  2. Ugh, yeah, I should change the title.
