unsupported file layout

I am trying to setup pdflib on a freebsd server running 2x Xeon processors.

The kernel is compiled using AMD64 version of freebsd6.

I downloaded the binairies for freebsd 5.x for the IA32 architecture.

I've copied the 
into /usr/local/lib/php/20041030 since this is 
the directory used into my extension_dir attribute in my php.ini

When I reload apache, I get an error in my php error log saying:

[16-Nov-2005 01:45:05] PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: 
Unable to load dynamic library 
'/usr/local/lib/php/20041030/libpdf_php.so' - /usr/
local/lib/php/20041030/libpdf_php.so: unsupported 
file layout in Unknown on line 0

Does that has anything to do with the fact I 
compiled using my kernel using AMD64 or does it 
have something to do with the fact I am running 
freebsd 5.x binairies on a 6.x version ?

 From my understanding, the problem is related to 
the fact that the binairy was compiled for 
freebsd 5 on an intel IA32 architecture and that 
I am running freebsd 6 with AMD64.

Since I compiled my kernel with
options         COMPAT_IA32             # Compatible with i386 binaries
options         COMPAT_FREEBSD5         # Compatible with FreeBSD5

Shouldn't it be working ? or do I need to do 
antything special to "activate" these functions
