Why separate repository would be needed? CentOS-8 as far as I can
contains 32-bit versions of all packages that I need. I can manually
install them and compile the package, no problems.
The published i686 package set is not complete enough to create a mock
chroot from it.
There should be a way to get this working for most packages with a
carefully crafted mock configuration that sets up an x86_64 root, but
runs rpmbuild for a 32-bit build. Or you install a VM with the 32-bit
development packages and run rpmbuild manually. But some spec files are
simply not compatible with a build environment where gcc defaults to
create 64-bit binaries.
Internally, Red Hat has fully 32-bit buildroots, so we don't run into
