Yes, I did have the 32bit version, and very likely there *were* missing

I expect the message "bash: ./seamonkey: No such file or directory" was 
saying that libs were missing, not that it could not find the seamonkey 
executable, as I had assumed.

I tried this and unfortunately the page that the download was supposed 
to come from gave an error message, and I was unable to obtain the 
package for installation. I would have preferred this message.

Indeed! And I now have this successfully installed.
