##setting up environment based on 32bit
envset(){
        export PERL5LIB=/usr/lib/perl5
        export CC="gcc -m32"
        export LD="ld -melf_i386"

sudo -u postgres -H sh -c "cd /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10;export PERL5LIB=/usr/lib/perl5;export CC="gcc -m32";export LD="ld -melf_i386";export CFLAGS="-m32";export LDFLAGS="-m32";setarch i386;./configure --prefix=/pgarc/psql --with-perl"

when i run this in the script.  its ending up with the following output instead of executing ./configure

+ sudo -u postgres -H sh -c 'cd /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10;export PERL5LIB=/usr/lib/perl5;export CC=gcc' '-m32;export LD=ld' '-melf_i386;export CFLAGS=-m32;export LDFLAGS=-m32;setarch i386;./configure --prefix=/pgarc/psql --with-perl'

The most likely cause of the original error message is that /usr/local/perl-5.8.9/lib/5.8.9/i386-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so is a 32-bit library but you are trying to build a 64-bit application. You need to install the 64-bit perl library
