In general, this is true.

However, for the definitive answer of whether a port can be built, it's 
presence in /usr/dports is the key.  If the port is there, it's 
buildable at least on x86_64 (by definition).

We only have "negative" status reports publicly available -- lists of 
ports that don't build and their build logs.

The "positive" report I guess would be the mirror itself, e.g. 
and search a category or "all" directory...

I hope that helps,
