SL6 x86_64 support for i686

I’ve now added the basic set of i686 libraries into the SL6 x86_64 package lists which should permit the running of most i686 applications (e.g. Adobe acrobat) on that platform. It adds about 60 library packages, which is not too bad, and this makes life a lot easier for anyone still stuck in the situation of having to run stupid 32bit-only binary applications on x86_64 machines. Maybe one day everything will come with multiple architecture support, how hard can it be really?
