I've had similar problems running 32bit python.  I didn't know about  
those prefer-32-bit options, and was using arch -i386 python.  I  
tracked it down to the executables: for some reason the python  
executable in /usr/bin is different than the one in the Python  
framework.  The one in /usr/bin is the one that gets executed by  
default, but the one in the framework *does* respond to arch -i386,  
and may respond to those prefer- options.  Since the versioned  
executables in /usr/bin are symlinks to the framework executables, try  
running 'python2.6'.
