Build i386 binaries based on i386 shared libraries .so

Hi guys

You might remember my post about running i686 binaries on an i386.
I've given that idea up because there doesn't seem to be any emulator or easy way of doing that.

I like to create my own live cd's for specialized purposes.
I see Knoppix i386 runs fine on my i586 but my i386 install of CentOS on an i686 machine does not work on an i586

What I want to do is use Centos or another simple distro to create i386 binaries. I know how to do that part but what I cannot do is get them to work on an i586 because my i686 system uses .so files that are meant for i686.

Basically I need an environment that has i386 .so files so I can base my livecd off them.
I'm already familiar with the gcc CFLAGS of march & mtune but they don't help when your compiler is using i686 .so files.

Any help would be much appreciated because I'm totally stuck
