Unfortunately the x86 part of boinc is really hard coded, even if you
have 64bit machine you will download many x86 apps, so this won't likely
change anytime soon, unless somebody proves to me that every upstream
project has a 64bit native application.

At the moment, without the ia32libs you won't be able to crunch at many
projects, and this isn't an acceptable behavior.

So this bug for now is "won't fix".

Please look at client/cs_platforms.cpp file

If somebody points to me that every projects can crunch in a 64 bit environment I'll be glad to remove this dependency.
Otherwise we will have many reports about "cannot crunch on project x"
