You don't need any options.  On amd64, if you do:

	cd pkgsrc/www/opera && make install

the emulator framework will see that the opera package only supports
"linux-i386" on your platform, and use the appropriate "linux-i386"
SuSE dependencies for your platform.  If that's not happening, then
can you give the output of the following?

	cd pkgsrc/www/opera
	make show-depends

On amd64, it should be depending on the suse32_* packages automatically
without needing to set any special options.
