Yes. Once you build a package, it hasn't any 32bit deps. But, does SBo
provide any binary packages? NO. What if a user runs Slackware64 but
doesn't have 32bit slackware in hand? I know you can always run the
installer and let it pour files into /opt but we are talking about
SlackBuilds which users can make use of the package system of
Slackware, right?

Is there any way to build package from the VBox installer? If so, it
may become independent from the 32bit build environment.
