On the port specific pages, you should not try to duplicate information
about what each port is (e.g. in the i386 case, just add alink to the
appropriate page describing that "i386" means). 

Then, i think we (-current :) runs Solaris/intel as well, and maybe SCO? 
Maybe you can check... :>

The intro page is good. I just wonder if the information about which port
supports emulation of which OS (and maybe to which extend!) may be placed
elsewhere, maybe on*/index.html.
