Doesn't this do what you want? linux32 emerge -avt mozilla-firefox
>From the manpage for linux32:
linux32 creates a 32bit environment for the specified program, usually a shell. The environment is inherited by all child processes of that program, unless they set a different personality. The 32bit environment currently means all uname(1) system calls (and thus also the outputs of the uname(1) program with -m or -a options) will return a 32bit type instead of a 64bit type as the machine type. linux64 can be used to temporarily switch back. --- Vladimir Vladimir G.
