I believe I've posted a message about i386 jail on amd64 some time
ago. The problem is that some ports use sysctl and uname to get
arch they're running on, so you have to replace them. I've been
told later that uname does respect some environement variables, so
you can change it's behaviour through env, but you definitely can't
do this to sysctl.

I've just patched tinderbox to replace them with wrappers which
s|amd64|i386| in sysctl and uname output, and so far this worked
without any failures.

Attached is my patch to lib/tc_command.sh. Don't mind other changes,
you'll need two chunks: wrap() function and the next one which calls
it in makeBuild(). The last one, which modifies libmap, may also
be useful - this was suggested by miwi@ and fixed some pthread
linkage issues between 7.x and 8.x as I remember. Maybe it's not
actually needed any more.
