Syslinux bootloader

running make with syslinux I encounter an error:

"./mk-lba-img: cannot execute binary file"

Running "file ./mk-lba-img" I get this result:

mk-lba-img: elf 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 sysv

Does this mean that my makefile is trying to execute a 64bit binary? If so.. I can't find the 32 bit distribution of Syslinux, anyone know where I can get it?
