The only incompatibility you show is in the glibc; certainly, if it is 
dynamically linked, ldd could show you more problems.  If it is a 32-bit 
program, there's not much you can do easily, beyond installing all the 
32-bit compatibility libraries.  The next step would be to install a 
linux of the vintage expected by the program.
