32-bit fbsd binaries on amd64 (we can already run 32bit linux/fc4 stuff, so this should work, right?)

As you may have guessed, I'm not terribly expert.  I managed to get
this far (which is to say embarrassingly not far):

ELF interpreter /libexec/ld-elf32.so.1 not found
Abort trap: 6

The only thing I see in libexec is ld-elf.so.1 - is it possible to do
a standard sysinstall without any of the 32-bit stuff, or am I just a
symlink short of a load?  If so, is there a metaport of 32-bit stuff,
or do I have to take the leap and make buildworld?
