cast from pointer to integer of different size: what is the problem???

I am new of linux world and I am trying to install a program on Suse 10.0 amd_64 and I receive the following warnings

"cast from pointer to integer of different size"
"incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function functionname"

The binary is unusable

This is a widely used program so I am pretty sure there are no massive bugs. Is this sign that the program was written for a 32 bit version of linux? How can I solve this problem?

How are you installing? RPM? YUM? Build from source? Where did you get the package from?

The error message is an extremely serious one; I wouldn't expect such code to compile at all.

You may have mismatched libraries, or you may have altered source code, or any of a number of other problems.

What package is it?

This is T-coffee, a multiple sequence (protein, DNA) aligment program. I am a new of linux and it quite convoluted. I am no expert at all. Here is where I got the program and I think this is a build form a source. I didn`t modify anything.
