AFAIK, a 32-bit app should be looking for /libexec/!

Does /libexec/ exist? Are there any libraries in /usr/lib32?
If not, you need to install or build 32-bit compatible libraries. Not
just the system libraries (you should be able to get those from the
install CD with sysinstall), but also any 3rd party libraries that
netvault requires!

Seems that you are using a GENERIC kernel. That does include 32-bit
