> Virtualbox needs 32-bit libraries at compilation-time, which aren't available by default on a 64-bit install. You'll need to install 32-bit libraries via multilib.
> At runtime, however, 32-bit dependencies are not needed (IIRC), so once it's compiled, you shouldn't need the 32-bit libs. This is why the precompiled versions from Oracle reportedly work on stock 64-bit Slack.
