This problem is specific to the x86 architecture. I've posted a way to
work around this issue [1] some time ago, along with a template script
you can adjust to your needs [2]. If your host is an x86_64 machine, be
sure to install 32-bit versions of your main libraries (e.g. libc6-i386
on Debian Squeeze). Hope it helps.
