I see, but in case I want to run the 32 bit apps from the 64 bit system,
is it enough to have the ia32-libs package installed, or is it absolutely
necessary to add those lines in /etc/ld.so.conf?  Perhaps I should ask
whether you can run your apps in the chroot as comfortably as you can from
your 64 bit system.
