I would create a 32 bit chroot to avoid the trouble of running any
32-bit programs with 32-bit libraries on my amd64 machine as is. See
this for a sample tutorial:

http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=18001

Of course, this would involve creating a (much smaller) duplicate
installation. But then, it's easier to maintain (in my opinion) two
separate chroots, rather than a single amd64 installation with the
requirement of installing some 32-bit libraries as well...

HTH.
