The name "amd64" is obviously based on 64-bit wide words. The "x86" 
architecture was supporting 8-bit systems. So I would assume that an x86 
application could possibly run on an amd64 system, not otherwise.

You have two more options: ImageMagick and static libraries.

Make it a complete virtual system, something like those system images you can 
download from VMware. That way you don't have to make any assumptions of the 
target platforms, all is included, even the batteries.
