using linux-firefox on amd64

I found, that the only way to use the linux-firefox (a 32-bit Linux
binary) on amd64 is by removing the ~/.fonts.cache-1 prior to starting
it -- the process gets SIGILL on startup otherwise.

Is that because the file is architecture specific, or because the
versions of whatever library maintains it (freetype?) differ too much
between FreeBSD's native and what's installed by linux compatability
ports (linux_base-8 in my case)?
