With that many you obviously have a local mirror that they all update
from, right?
 cd pathtomirror/5/updates/x86_64/RPMS
 find ../../i386 -name thunderbird\* -exec ln -s {} \;
 cd ..
 createrepo -v --update -d -o repodata x86_64

Any chance you could get the source of those and recompile for 64?
Yeh Yeh, maintenance headache, but can that set of headaches (work [and
more at each update of the tool] and IA) be balanced against the
alternatives and be a win for the division.
