I don't know why the 32 bit version of Wine, running on a 32 bit
system would be looking for the 32 bit version of libnss-mdns.  Maybe
one of the other folks here can state why  It is possible, however,
that the 32 bit version of Wine for Gentoo was built on a 64 bit
system and that is what is causing the error.
