I'm sorry -- I'm a bit confused about what this script does, and
the web page didn't really explain it.  Does it remove the need for
a 32-bit chroot to run the above apps on a 64-bit system?  If so,
how?  By putting the 32-bit libraries in a special location, and
then surrounding all the above apps in a script wrapper that
sets library paths to the new locations?  That kind of thing?
