i beleive u can do it with the cross tools.
dave at shrapnel:~$ apt-cache search cross |grep compil
apt-cross - retrieve, build and install libraries for cross-compiling
distcc - Simple distributed compiler client and server
dpkg-cross - tools for cross compiling Debian packages
Essentially you are cross compiling, as you are using one arch to build apps for another. I use mingw32 so I can build Windows apps under linux. (my GTK+ programs, whichi run on linux, freebsd, OS-X and windows).
Setting up a cross-compiler cane be challenging, but it can't hurt to look at apt-cross and dpkg-cross..

Yeah I know the first solution, but I seem to recall someone posting instructions as to how to build 32-bit bins under the AMD64 distro of Ubuntu.
