It works on most distributions (SUSE, RH, Mandrake) if you have the
right compat RPMs installed because they follow LSB properly. Normally
the 64bit install should install the right compat rpms by default
together with the 64bit libraries.

The main offenders which seem to be unable to get this right are the Debian derived
ones (Ubunutu etc.) and Slackware. On those you need to use a chroot hack.
Complain to them.

Basically if your distribution has "lib64" and it isn't a symlink to lib
you should be ok.

Kerrnel compile fine without any libraries BTW - just user tools
need them.

I am trying this on centos 4.3 and its complaining. I posted the entire compile errors earlier.
