If I understood Eric's multilib setup correctly, running this prior to 
building virtualbox will result in virtualbox trying to build a 32bit binary 
on a 64bit system, which is not what we (I) want. VirtualBox needs 32bit-
compat libs available in the system to build a *64bit* package (that won't run 
on a 32bit system).

No need for that anyway, the SlackBuild itself is 64bit-ready.
