I managed to get the smart software installed in fatclient chroot by
first installing it on a normal 32-bit workstation and then creating
a .deb package from the files it installed. The .deb package can then be
installed in the chroot with dpkg. Running it as a localapp should not
differ from fatclient installation, although I haven't tried that. I
documented the steps here:

I hope it still works the same way.
