For Firefox (32bit) from fedora.us I needed no special libs from iX86 on
x86_64. But Galeon was a real problem and I don't know if mozilla is
that easy. Installing a second mozilla from the mozilla.org precompiled
tar File should be easy (does it still exists?).

Yes, often, this is annoying. QT had such a problem also IIRC. Was hard
to get a 32bit xine run on an 64bit FC2 (now there are 64bit xine
available at livna.org this is easier again)... But I don't think /usr/
bin64 or something like that is specified somewhere (LSB)? Maybe this
could be solved by 
and a script or link that points to the right Version?
