I built it OK in a 32but VM and it runs, sort of ...

It starts up with a configuration wizard at the end of which it crashes 
with a message that "lib/native/libjlibtorrent.so might have disabled 
stack guard" with recommendations to fix with "execstack -c" (which 
didn't work) or to link it with "-z noexecstack" (which I don't know how 
to do with the gradle build framework that is used). Unfortunately the 
libjlibtorrent.so file is not built locally but part of the git clone 
and its unclear how to regenerate it.

Interestingly, at
http://forum.frostwire.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17512 is a message from 
one of their developers that "we're going to make it so that the next 
frostwire releases are 32-bit compatible in Linux once again". Maybe 
just wait a while ...
