It's a very simple concept. If you have 64-bit FreeBSD dynamic
linked binaries, you need the 64-bit FreeBSD shared libraries to
run them. If you have 32-bit FreeBSD dynamic linked binaries,
then you need the 32-bit FreeBSD shared libraries to run them.
If you have the 32-bit linux dynamic binaries, then you need to
have the 32-bit linux shared libraries. I have 314 libraries and
symlinks in /usr/lib32.

David was talking about *building* the 32-bit software on a 64-bit
machine. This isn't supported. What you can do is take a 32-bit
binary, built on a 32-bit machine, and run it on your 64-bit amd64
system. "make buildworld" is setup to build the needed 32-bit
libraries and loader on a 64-bit system/
