On a 64bit system /usr/lib (a link to /usr/lib64) has 64bit libraries
and /usr/lib32 has 32bit libraries which makes 32bit programs fail in
this manner.

Some gcc (internal) libraries may link to libgmp these days.

Other than that I have no idea about the situation. Building a piece
of software on a 64bit system normally results in a 64bit binary
unless you or the software author take steps to set up the build
otherwise or you specifically install a 32bit-only compiler (which is
still quite hard).
