Missing executing 3rd party binary

I have two versions of the binary file that i would like to successfully execute under Gentoo.
One version was compiled by the vendor /w gcc33 claiming to run under Debian 3.1, SuSE 9.3 and Fedora Core3.
Another is for MacOS and Linux (general)

I am currently using Gentoo 2005.1 (X86) with gcc3.3.6 & glibc2 - 2.3.5.
When i try to execute either version of the program i get the following message:

1) gcc33 binary: error while loading shared libraries: can not open shared object file: No such file or directory.

2) general Linux binary: symbol __lib_sigaction version GLIBC_2.2 not defined in file with link time reference.

Already tried the following ...
emerge lib-compat
emerge --update --deep world
emerge --depclean
and still not working.

Some helpful info..

I run a search for on the system and file could't be found.
I also found /lib/ linked to
/usr/lib/ linked to

output of /etc/env.d/05gcc...







Is LD_LIBRARY_PATH the same as LDPATH in Gentoo?
Is that mean i have to upgrade to gcc3.4 with libsstdc++-v3 for the gcc33 binary to work? What about the other binary, it should work?
It is very important for me to get this program working under Gentoo as i like this distro a lot, but so far i struggling trying to get at least one of those programs to work. Any help is much appreciated!

Before updates I'd try if it works with a simplier trick. Create a symlink to /usr/lib/ with the name /usr/lib/

You have high chances to make it work this way.
