Use of Intel Fortran compiler on a Sid/IA64 box?

Has anyone tried to use the Intel Fortran and C++ compilers (freely
available from Intel's web site, though not free software) on an Itanium
machine running sid?

These compilers are packaged for Redhat 7.1. Running the install script
gives good results (one just has to have the rpm Debian package installed).

Unfortunately, a simple compilation test fails :

refloch@itanium:~/test$ efc a.f
   program TI

7 Lines Compiled
ias: No such file or directory
refloch@itanium:~/test$ which ias
refloch@itanium:~/test$ file `which ias`
/opt/intel/compiler50/ia64/bin/ias: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

I use the following kernel-image package :

refloch@itanium:~/test$ dpkg -s kernel-image-2.4.17-itanium-smp
Package: kernel-image-2.4.17-itanium-smp
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: base
Installed-Size: 20952
Maintainer: Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com>
Source: kernel-image-2.4.17-ia64
Version: 011226.3
Provides: kernel-image, kernel-image-2.4
Depends: initrd-tools (>= 0.1.6), fileutils (>= 4.0), modutils (>= 2.3.12)
Suggests: elilo

What   I  understand  (I'm  not   really   a  wizard in  compilation/kernel
stuff...just a  poor sysadmin/debian developer who tries  to have this damn
4-proc, 4Gb Itanium machine running  something else than Microsoft Whistler
or Redhat 7): 

   ias is 32-bit i386 code, thus needing the support for running 32-bit
i386 binaries. I thought that having it enabled in the kernel would be
enough, but it is obvious that I'm missing something...
