Sorry, I misunderstood your query. 

You have some local 32bit non rpm packaged binary and you want to
install all the 32bit packages that provide the dependencies it needs?

I fear you will have to use 'ldd' to try and pull those out (which
won't always get them all, as there may be other things that you need
that are not library dependencies). 

This would really be the same problem if you had a non packaged 64 bit
binary lump. 

Do you have source for this thing? Can you package it properly?
