  Hello!
  I am a GGL user. ("GGL" stands for "Gentoo GNU/Linux" - just in case :) ). And I had the same problem trying to run Coccinella on my amd64 machine. In my case this problem had been successfully solved by simply removing the following folders:
       /bin/unix/Linux/i686/treectrl
       /bin/unix/Linux/i686/tkpng

But still there were some problems (with sound, with tray icon, etc.), which also had been successfully solved by simply removing the following directories:
        /bin/unix/Linux/i686/tktray (solved the tray problem)
        /bin/unix/Linux/i686/snack2.2 (solved the sound problem)

Deleting the following catalogs didn't make any noticeable changes, but I decided to delete them too since I have the same libraries installed natively in my system.
        /bin/unix/Linux/i686/tls1.4
        /bin/unix/Linux/i686/Img1.3

---------------------------------
  So as I have understood, for all the Coccinella's functions to work properly (including the possibility to run Coccinella at all), one needs all the packages which are present in "/bin/unix/i686" folder to be installed in the system natively (correct binaries for the host's architecture) and not to use the "bundled" libraries, because the x86 emulation on amd64, for example, doesn't always work correctly.
  Well, I hope, this information at least a bit useful for somebody. :)
  Thanks and good luck!
