Building 9.6.1-P2 for 32-bit Redhat RHEL 5.4

I am trying to build a package based on 9.6.1-P2. The target platform is a 32-bit ix86 environment. The build platform is a RHEL 5.4 x86_64 system. I have managed to build the native x86_64 package without problem, but I am getting a failure when building the package using a target setting equal to one of i386,i586 and i686.
The error is a message from the assembler saying that "suffix or operands invalid for 'xadd' " This occurs when compiling lib/isc/stats.c.
At present I do not have a 32-bit build environment I can try to natively build this on, and was hoping that somebody could suggest how I can get round this problem in the build environment I am using.
