Why chroot ?

Hi all,

I was wondering why do people use chroot for 32bits applications?

Why not just compile all 64bits compliant source code with an option
-L/path/to/64bits/library and let the other application get the normal
way to the 32bits library ?

(I know this is a very naive question, I guess there is some good
reasons to not do like this. But I can't figure it out by myself)
