Once absolutely reliable and foolproof way of doing this is to run a
32 bit chroot within your 64 bit system and then then install the 32
bit vesion of GHC in the chroot.

In Debian (and Ubuntu), the debootstrap and schroot packages are two
tools that make the creation and management of chroots trivial.
