OK, did remove my hack and checked again:

thomas at AMD64:~$ dpkg -l |grep lib32z1
ii  lib32z1                                         1.2.3-3ubuntu4 
     compression library - 32 bit runtime

-> showed me that the 32bit lib is installed.

thomas at AMD64:~$ dpkg -L lib32z1

-> showed me where it should be installed

And  I checked for in /usr/lib32/, but there was not such 
a file. Reinstalled lib32z1, After that "sudo ldconfig" and OO was 
working again.

Maybe this info helps somebody, too.

Regards, Thomas
