It is possible to run 32-bit code on a 64-bit machine. One way is to
run a 32-bit (s)chroot.

Users of "icewm" (like me) will soon have to put in some work on
either on fixing this wm and/or its libs or on shifting to another wm
since it depends on older versions of libraries (imlib1).
The same unfortunately applies to "fvwm" (gtk1 and glib1).
ISTR something about running quite hard to stay in the same place :-)
