   Could you please explain a bit more what's needed here?

our compiler has currently no idea where to find 32 bit libraries.
i don't know if amd64/i386 headers are compatible enough for you
to use them (i'd hope so, and it shouldn't be too difficult to make
it so, but we had to do it for sparc/sparc64.)  amd64 gcc at least
does already include "biarch.h".

i'm not sure what else is needed without actually trying this out.
