I figured it out anyway, after some trial-and-error and plenty of compiling. For future reference, these are the packages that I had to explicitly enable 32-bit support for - this goes in a file in (or at the end of) /etc/portage/package.use.

x11-libs/libX11 abi_x86_32
x11-libs/libXext abi_x86_32
media-libs/mesa abi_x86_32
sys-apps/util-linux abi_x86_32
media-libs/alsa-lib abi_x86_32
dev-libs/openssl abi_x86_32
x11-libs/libSM abi_x86_32
There are other dependencies, but the package manager should figure those out and allow you to add them automatically.

Hi Samuel,

I'm quite unfamiliar with Gentoo, but you can find a list of the Debian/Ubuntu package dependencies at [1]. Hope this helps somehow.

>(maybe after I get it working I'll learn how to write an ebuild and do that.)
