Sorry, i missed the part about you not wanting a chroot. As far as I
know, portage currently does not support installing 32-bit and 64-bit
versions of the same package, i.e. it does not know anything about the
bitness a package was compiled for and therefore doesn't use this
information for dependency resolution. In other words, it will not know
that the X11 libs it installed are 64-bit and that the firefox you want
to compile for 32-bits needs the 32-bit X11 libs.
