Nagios Client/Plugins and nrpe on a 64bit Ubuntu install problem

I am a bit stuck with getting a nagios client (64 bit Ubuntu) to be monitored by my nagios host. I am trying to install the client/plugins on a 64 bit Ubuntu 606 machine but it keeps giving a error. I am following the steps as stated in http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2008/06/how-to-monitor-remote-linux-host-using-nagios-30/

When I do #./configure  in the Plugins download directory it completes with no error, but when I do  #make it gives the below error:
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/nagios/nagios-plugins-1.4.11/plugins'
/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc  -g -O2  -ldl -L. -o check_apt  check_apt.o utils.o ../lib/libnagiosplug.a ../gl/libgnu.a runcmd.o

I have tried a few articles to get 32bit compiled on 64bit, but I keep getting the same results. Any one have a suggestion on how to get it working or where will I be able to a 64bit version of the nagios plugins?

Information below taken from here:

"Adding -m32 to your CFLAGS and/or LDFLAGS should force building 32-bit applications. This assumes your setup is prepared for 32-bit applications already of course.

$ export CFLAGS='-m32'
$ export LDFLAGS='-m32'
$ ./configure ... etc .. etc .."
