That is a known issue caused by differences in alignment of C
structures in 32bit and 64bit code. The fix is to just install the
amd64 package manualy.

That is neigther legal nor usefull. You are violating the GPL by
providing a binary without source and that binary could contain
anything, from "rm -rf /" to a rootkit. You must always provide
source, for legal and auditing reasons.
