The new binutils done by Redhat under contract are a lot better than
the old ones -- n32 and n64 mostly work now. In the process they may
have changed or fixed some of the o32 behavior, too.
By the way, the 32-bit kernel could have an N32 mode added; it's
fairly straightforward to merge the bits currently in the 64-bit
kernel that you'd need. You'd also need a very modern glibc.
