It looks to be the same general issue. Does adding this patch fix things?
When compiling 32-bit on 64-bit you generally need to be sure to set
PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR in your environment to point to the appropriate path. It
might also serve to fix things in this instance, if not set.

Good idea, I don't think it will break anything.
