Got this working now, I can run realplayer 10 as a standalone program
(not as firefox plugin) by modifying Realplayer/realplay adding these
lines near the start:

export GTK_PATH

and creating a directory /etc32/gtk-2.0 copying
/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders into it, then replacing every occurrence
of /lib/ in that file with /lib32/

You get a couple of warnings about LD_PRELOAD libraries not being
loadable (binaries run during the script are amd64 binaries and can't
load the ia32 libraries - it could be fixed but should never be a
problem in this case).
