Check the section of our FAQ: http://slackbuilds.org/faq/#x86_64 and 
especially adding this line to the configure command is important, it 
was not present by default in a lot of our Slackware 13.0 submissions 
because it is not needed when you run pure-64bit Slackware:


In a multilib setup, it is important that you point the tools to the 
lib64 directories first.

Cheers, Eric
