FreeBSD 5.4R fails to run i386 binaries. Missing

Thanks for you information. I'm glad to know buildworld will at least produce the required loader and libraries. Where you using FreeBSD 5.4 when trying this?
I don't really wanna do a make buildworld on a production server, so if that's the only way to get the required loader and libs, I guess I'll have to try and find another amd64 test server and copy the required files from there to the production server.
