SuSE does "multilib" differently than RedHat afaik. IIRC, there are 3 products
	1) ELF32 only
	2) ELF64 only
	3) multilib.
What's missing is all the needed "other persuasion" packages on 1) and 2).

So what you want is no different than setting up a cross-compiler, or
other wise setting up host <-> target infrastucture.

But its rather easy to set up whatever you need with an install into a chroot(2).
That does need root access to execute chrott(2).
