Is there a way to rebuild 32-bit libraries under amd64?

I have 8.0-STABLE amd64 machine, and I need to run some 32-bit FreeBSD 
process which runs fine on 8.0-STABLE i386.

So I copied all shared libs needed by it from i386 into there respective 
locations on amd64, but under lib32/ folder. => /usr/local/lib32/ (0x289ca000) => /usr/local/lib32/ (0x289d5000) => /usr/local/lib32/ (0x289da000) => /usr/lib32/ (0x28ac4000) => /usr/local/gcc/4.5.0-32bit/lib/ 
(0x28add000) => /usr/lib32/ (0x28ae9000) => /usr/lib32/ (0x28afe000)

But the process crashes. After debugging I found that regexec returns 
result different from what it returns on i386 with the same input.

So my question is: is there a way to rebuild for example 
/usr/lib32/ and /usr/lib32/ on amd64? Or what may 
cause such incompatibility?
