You mean lib32 from the base distribution ? Yes. But other then that,
nothing more is needed. The service to the project would be for somebody
to see what work and what does not in the typical desktop user setup,
when 32bit userland started on 64bit kernel.

It is known that network management does not work.

Eventual, but not easy goal is to run 64bit kernel if CPU supports long
mode, regardeless of the bitness of the userland.
