You could try creating a 64 bit chrooted environment to build
packages in. I do that for a few things that fail on multilib.
Basically you install slackware into a directory. Once done, you can
get a root login by typing:
chroot /path/to/chroot /bin/bash
installpkg has a --root option which you can use to installl packages
anywhere you like.
Three great scientific theories of the structure of the universe are
the molecular, the corpuscular and the atomic. A fourth affirms, with
Haeckel, the condensation or precipitation of matter from ether --
whose existence is proved by the condensation or precipitation ... A
fifth theory is held by idiots, but it is doubtful if they know any
more about the matter than the others.
