There's something going on there.  I had to edit the slackbuild along 
those lines.

And then it errored out based upon cpu not being 64 bit.

But my E6750 dual core IS 64 bit (is it not?)

So, I've it's not yet working for me on 64 bit.

I'll need to study it all some more.

Appreciate any assistance/suggestions too.
