【how to compile 32-bit apps using autoconf】

when calling ./configure what param should I use to compile a 32bit app under 64bit os.

In fact, I searched the web before, someone says that I should add arguments like --host=i386-linux or --build=xxxxxx

I have tried both params, but it doesn't work.

Pretty sure you can't. At least not on a pure 64 bit system. Your libraries are all 64 bit. You would need a multilib setup and probably some cross compiling "tricks".
