32 bit libraries in a 64 bit world?

Good afternoon y¹all!  I¹ve asked this question once before, so forgive me,
but I never got a conclusive answer and now it¹s time that I have to make
something happen :-)

We've ported our applications from Fedora Core 5 32 bit to CentOS 5.3 x86_64
and so far our own code is working great.

Now we need to link to a set of third party libraries that are 32 bit and
since the vendor is in the middle of bankruptcy they're not going to port
the code for us and getting the source code is even more of a stretch.

Is there anything I can do?  Some kind of a wrapper or conversion program or
something???  These are dynamic libraries I'm linking to using the standard
gcc-4.1.2 that comes with the machine.  If I need to upgrade gcc or other
libraries on the box, I can do that too.
