You should be able to 'just run them', if you have the lib32 installed 
in your system.


$ cat /usr/src/tools/lib32/README
# $FreeBSD: src/tools/lib32/README,v 1.2 2004/11/25 04:25:21 peter Exp $

Set WITH_LIB32=yes in /etc/make.conf and do a buildworld/installworld.

Alternatively, if you have just done a buildworld/installworld, you
might be able to 'make build32' and 'make install32' in the top of the
/usr/src tree.
