Now I'm confused.  I don't use #!/bin/bash on anything.  I always use 
#!/bin/sh.  Are you referring to the upstream source?  Or was I 
inadvertently using bash specific features somewhere in the build script?

Backing down the optimization on 64 bit only portion of the build 
scripts should satisfy the multilib compilation.  Can you send me your 
changes, a git patch is fine if you don't want upstream changes yet, so 
I can test on a multilib system?  Or upstream is fine, just let me know 
which branch to pull from and I'll test it.

I know multilib is "not supported", but that's actually how I'm going to 
use it for most of my systems.

If you are in a hurry stop reading :-) A side note follows:

My colo provider went out of business a couple of weeks ago.  I was 
being auto billed, so I didn't know it until my server went offline.  No 
one notified me.  I've been with these guys for 7 years.  So my server 
that was 64 bit only, not multlib, is in limbo.  I'm waiting for the 
property management attorney to let me have it back since they seized 
all the assets of the colocation provider.

My other systems rely on multilib because of skype and other 32 bit only 
software.  I'm a consultant and I work with a lot of overseas groups, so 
I end up having to use this stuff.  In addition, the kernel from 
Slackware 14.1 does not boot in the latest version of Virtualbox, it 
actually does work with the 14.0's 3.2.29 kernel.  That's another story. 
I installed a 32 bit version of Slackware 14.1 with the kernel from the 
previous version.  But that's not a good test system.

In short, my usual test systems are not available.  And I need my other 
3 Slackware boxes for work.

I appreciate the feedback on systems I simply don't have working right 
now.  I suppose it's time to switch off of Virtualbox and use another 
virtual system for testing.  I just haven't had time to look into 
changing my working habits.
