This might or might not be an issue related to your kernel
configuration. There is an option in the kernel to allow IA32
executables to run under the AMD64 platform. I don't know the particular
name of this option in the .config file but, nonetheless, it should be
listed as an option in the kernel configuration. I doubt this will solve
it but give it a try. Also, see if you can run other 32-bit Apps. If
they run than it's most likely not going to be solved by my suggestion
but it would still be a good idea to enable that feature in the kernel
for practical reasons.
