Cannot run 64-bit pre-compiled binaries on CLFS-Pure64 system

I'm trying to install OpenJDK on my CLFS x86_64-64 build, and when I try to run java from the 64bit binary package (OpenJDK- in the latest SVN) that BLFS provides, I get:
sudo: unable to execute /opt/OpenJDK- No such file or directory
At first I thought it was probably a PATH error, but even trying to run the java executable from the host directory gave me the same error. Then I thought perhaps it was a permissions problem, but running it as root gave the exact same error. I then downloaded the JRE bin package from Oracle, and got the same error. So to see if other precompiled binaries failed in the same way, I tried to run the 64-bit dropbox executable, and got the same dreaded error. Googling this got me nowhere. So I really want to know what's going on here. It will be great if somebody could provide some insight on this. Thank you.

Anything in the messages log?
Is selinux enabled?
What does this give:
ls -l /opt/OpenJDK-

I got it sorted. It's quite embarrassing actually. I just needed to symlink /lib64 and /usr/lib64 to /lib and /usr/lib resp. (since in pure64 CLFS, these aren't present). Thank you, smallpond, for your reply, though. Thanks.
