Which distro?  Also, libvirt 0.3.3 is rather old; we are now at 0.8.2
upstream, and Fedora 13 includes 0.7.7.

Generally, on an x86_64 platform that uses rpms, the 32-bit libraries
are available as a separate rpm.  For example, I'm running Fedora 13 on
an x86_64 host; so I would use 'yum install libvirt-devel.i686' to get
the 32-bit development libraries.
