you can theoretically compile the other libraries, put them somewhere,
and add that place to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but if the list is long this
may take a lot of work. also it leaves you vulnerable to an OS update,
after which your binaries may not work with the system libs, so you
might consider compiling *everything* yourself; still bribing the admin
could be a lot easier.

I don't understand what "through the network" means. you compiled it on
a 32bit machine, and then...?

in principle, no problem, however there was a thread a while back that
made it seem unattractive because of the procedure to do it.

32bit binaries will run just fine on either x86_64 or IPF architectures,
but only *if* all the required 32bit libraries are present (the loader
will not mix 32 and 64 bit shared libs). from the error message you are
getting it is apparent that a library is missing regardless of where it
is running or what architecture.
