There's a package called amd64-archive (see
http://lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2005/07/msg00663.html ) which
appears to provide roughly the same functionality as ia32-libs (limited
32bit compatability without a chroot) while allowing more flexibility in
installing and removing packages. I haven't tried it but others on this
list have had success with it.
