Cross compiling a 32 bit target on a 64 bit platform is always prone to
problems as you're likely pick up the wrong library versions etc. Some
distro's have 32 bit compatibility directories, but I've always found
the best thing to do is to have a secondary complete 32bit install of
the distro and chroot into it when wanting to build 32 bit binaries.
