OK!  An expedient solution is now the last or near last
submission here.,918.0.html
Essentially, "sudo ln -s /lib /lib/i386-linux-gnu".

The body of /usr/aos/source/Linux.I386.Unix.Mod has 
	libraryPaths[0] := "/lib/i386-linux-gnu";
	libraryPaths[1] := "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu";
These paths are mentioned here,

but not in any of these.

*/lib/i386* appears to be an emerging multiarch thing.

Adoption of multiarch in Fedora seems possible.  If that 
happens, the i386-linux-gnu paths are likely to appear in the stock 
file system.  In the interim, the installation procedure for UnixAos is 
and "sudo ln -s /lib /lib/i386-linux-gnu" is just one extra step.  

Also UnixAos is a moving target.  A package for Fedora or Debian would 
need an update several times in a year.  Unless there is a very strong justification, 
I'm reluctant to extend my "unfinished projects" list.
