Instead, I'm going to build libjack and its dependencies (libFLAC and libsoundfile) as a bi-arch, installing the 32-bit versions in /usr/lib32 and the 64-bit versions in /usr/lib64, per the Debian standard. Then I'll try building ChucK with -m32 and it should link properly (I hope) and run correctly (again, I hope).

I'll be back after I've done that, to report success or to ask for further help if needed. Probably looking at next week by the time I get that far.
