Docs for running 32-bit apps?

I am having trouble getting 32 bit apps to work too.

Running 6.0-Release amd64 on new Intel SBX82 blades.  The vendor
delivered these without overriding lib32 and it was present in the
build tree but, strangely not installed.  Applications complained that wasn't there.

% cd /usr/src; make install32

'Fixed' that error, but now I get this kind of thing:

/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, ...
/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, ...

Am I missing some big part of the puzzle?  I am coming from a mostly
FreeBSD 4.X environment and libmap.conf (5) is a new idea, so maybe
that is it. /etc/libmap.conf doesn't exist on these systems.  But I
thought this was 'just supposed to work.'
