The two methods exist. A rewrite from scratch provides more control but using original code gives 1:1 port (usually).
However in either case porting a game is several weeks or months full-time work with little reward.

Just to add to that it is rare that an Amiga game uses libraries. They generally kill the OS and bang the hardware.
