I have an x86_64 bit machine that mounts a share with 32-bit programs. 
Is it possible to run a 32-bit application (R) when certain libraries 
that this application requires (libreadline) are only present in the 
64-bit version?

I suspect the answer to my question is no, but I'd like to hear a 
confirmation from more experienced people.

Terrorism is a tactic and so to declare war on terrorism
is equivalent to Roosevelt's declaring war on blitzkrieg.
