I think we're agreeing with each other. My 64-bit systems have 64-bit
versions of all the libraries they use installed, but only some 32-bit
versions. Hence, I was disagreeing with Nico's statement that "it's best
to assume that the shared objects are installed for all the architectures
the host can run." My experience is that they're normally only installed
for the *primary* architecture, and then *some* libraries are available
for secondary architectures, but not all.
