[torqueusers] installing Torque on a 64 bit AMD opteron server with 32 bit nodes

Hey everybody.  I'm new to all this and having some problems with my 
setup.  I have a 64 bit AMD Opteron server with a bunch of 32 bit 
nodes.  I'd like to have the pbs_server running on the 64 bit server 
sending out jobs to the 32 bit nodes.  However, if I run the usual 
configure, make, make install on the 64 bit system and then make the 
self-extracting packages, they don't work on the 32 bit nodes because 
they're the wrong architecture.

Is there a way to compile things in 32 bit mode on the 64 bit server?  I 
tried modifying the makefiles by hand to use "gcc -m32" instead of 
"gcc", but then I get linking errors.  Or maybe I'm doing something 
completely wrong here?

Thanks in advance for any help...
