Default i386 6.x binaries not working on AMD64 7.x (with compat)

I have installed freebsd 7 AMD64 and need to run a vendor program compiled on freebsd 6 i386 (no source supplied).
I have installed the port misc/compat6x. But for some reason, it does not recognise to use the 32 bit libraries.
I have added the libraries supplied to ldconfig.

[root@glue Base]# ldconfig -32 -r
/var/run/ld-elf32.so.hints:
search directories: /usr/lib32:/usr/local/lib32/compat:/opt/hds/Base

ld fails with this error (but works perfectly on freebsd7 i386 with compat6x installed).

[root@glue Base]# ld cvfwd
ld: warning: i386 architecture of input file `cvfwd' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting to 00000000004017d8

I think I have not configured something with ld.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

les

Does 32 bit compatibilty is actually working?

In other words does any 32 bit applications run in 64 bit environment on that machine?

I am not sure if other i386 binaries are working, everything else I have installed using compat6x is a 64bit version.

Sorry about that, it was ldd. cvfwd one of the binaries supplied by the installaiton disc.

On AMD64

[root@glue Base]# ldd cvfwd
ldd: cvfwd: can't read program header
ldd: cvfwd: not a dynamic executable

On i386

its-les-vm# ldd cvfwd
cvfwd:
libpthread.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/compat/libpthread.so.2 (0x2809c000)
libc.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/compat/libc.so.6 (0x280c1000)
