Do you have and in /usr/lib32?
Does ldconfig -32 -r show a list of files.

If you can't recompile raftercc and blasta for amd64, then try
to find the missing 32bit libs and drop them im /usr/lib32.
You could create a symlink to get (although I don't
recommend this approach).  A symlink probably won't work for because the C++ ABI changed.
