Unfortunately the only way to get vbox on slack64 is by either running the 
binary build (ie virtualbox puel), or by installing 32bit-compat libs for the 

Virtualbox needs the gcc, g++ and glibc 32bit components, but only on build 
time. It runs fine without them, so you can remove those packages again after 
building the package.

I tried to talk to the vbox devs already weeks ago, making them aware of the 
situation that slack64 doesn't have 32bit compat libs included, but no luck.
They don't seem to care enough about such an "exotic" system.
