Some poorly written software fails to run properly in 64-bit
environment. I have one such package, and my solution was to compile
it on a 32-bit box, and copy the binaries over. Works just fine with
32-bit compat enabled on the amd64 kernel.

Other than that, the FreeBSD/amd64 has been 100% rock solid for me
since 6.0 when I started getting 64-bit boxes.
