A packager of a debian based distro reported the same issue. They are doing:
 CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" LDFLAGS="$(LDFLAGS)" ./configure --host=$(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE) --build=$(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE) --prefix=/usr --mandir=\$${prefix}/share/man --infodir=\$${prefix}/share/info $(CONFFLAGS)

Where the two DEB_* variables are:
DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE   ?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE  ?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE)

When building 32-bit packages DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE is set to i486-linux-gnu and this results in 'i486-linux-gnu-as not found'.

Personally I consider it a misconfigured build system. It can be fixed by installing the proper binutils package for this architecture which I'm sure debian has. The same should be done for your ubuntu packages. You can't expect apps to build if you only have one half of the build apps (the compiler).
