It looks to me like gtk (stupidly) has hardcoded library paths and
filenames it uses to load things like libxfce.som rather than loading
the library through ld.so (which knows now to deal with 32 versus 64 bit

If that is the case, then short of making gtk sane, there isn't likely
to be much you can do.

Running the app in a 32 bit chroot would of course solve the problem
since then the file at that path would be the 32bit version.
