I am forwarding the answer of Peng Du that worked on the problem.
You probably have a problem with one of your system lib that is 32-bit.
For example glibc. Here are some relevant discussions.
Peng did a quick sample on a 64-bit debian machine, just call printf and
print something. At linking time gcc complained:
[dpo-deb4-64:/home/pdu/tryout]299 % gcc -m32 -c foo.c
[dpo-deb4-64:/home/pdu/tryout]302 % gcc foo.o -o foo
/hub/Linux/glibc-2.3.6/x86_64/apps/gcc-4.1.1/bin/ld: warning: i386
architecture of input file `foo.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
[dpo-deb4-64:/home/pdu/tryout]304 % ./foo
So you could try to make this kind of example work when looking for what
is really missing in the process before moving on to deal with libf2c.
In any case, the problem does not seem to come from us.

I tried to compile CLAPACK on a 64 bit architecture as a 32 bit library.
To do so, I renamed make.inc.example to make.inc and replaced the line
CC = gcc
CC = gcc -m32
I was able to create blas_linux.a library, but building f2clib failed. The
following shows the error messages that I got.
