Can't compile with FlagShip on 64 bit server

Running RedHat REL6 an a 64bit Intel server. Recently transferred my
FlagShip-6.1-19a license and installed onto it. I cannot compile any
application as it gives the following errors:

FlagShip PRO (unlimited users)
-- C compiler and linker phase:
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/local/FlagShip6/lib/ when
searching for -lFlagShip6
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/local/FlagShip6/lib/

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when
searching for -
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lFlagShip6
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I have looked at the page:
which specifies that I need to install 32bit libraries from the 64bit
Linux distribution. However, it does list a procedure for RedHat.
Additionally, RedHat support does not know FlagShip and thus far, has
not been too helpful.

If there is anyone here using RedHat REL5 on a 64 bit server, can you
provide the docs for getting around this problem. As a last ditch, I
suppose I can reinstall the 32 bit OS but I'd rather leave that as a
last resort.

1) For 64-bit RedHat or Fedora distribution, you will need standard
32bit packages, install e.g. by "yum install SDL.i686 glibc-devel-2.11-2.i686"

2) For VFS6, invoke also "yum install" and "yum
groupinstall 'Legacy Software Development' 'Legacy Software Support'"

3) In the /usr/local/FlagShip7/FS7config file (or in /usr/local/
FlagShip6/FS6config for VFS6), add -m32 to CCNAME : ... line

In FlagShip7, 64bit Linux works fine too. Changing FS7config is not required anymore, just install required Linux packages. There is detailed description available for each different Linux distribution available in via the (i) icon.

P.S. The FlagShip 8 is available also for native 64-bit Linux OS and 64-bit MS-Windows, see
