A dirty and maybe not 100% reliable way:
    grep -r i386 | grep -v x86_64 | grep supported_archs

This returns 75 results, but some are just bogus, like TeXShop, when
there's a newer TeXShop4 port available, or Qt 3, ...

Probably the most problematic ones are Wine, some other emulators
(dosbox, ...) ... the rest are ancient apps that probably nobody would
notice if they get removed.
