I can confirm the following build fine on 32bit and 64bit on a physical
machine and VirtualBox.


I had an issue with


During the build it looks for MagickWand.h in
/usr/include/ImageMagick/wand/MagickWand.h, but in Slackware 14.1 it's
located in /usr/include/ImageMagick-6/wand/MagickWand.h

I read it's policy not to patch upstream code so I just added a symlink to
ImageMagick-6 in /usr/include/. This seemed to do the trick as it built
fine the next time around.
