I am curious as to how you are going to achieve that. Creating a
SlackBuild script that builds a multilib gcc requires the presence of
both a multilib glibc and a multilib gcc. The process is iterative and
you'll need more than just one SlackBuild script.

You can try to cheat of course, by first installing a non-Slackware
multilib gcc/glibc but then the SlackBuild would not be accepted
because it does not work on a vanilla Slackware.

Let me know your ideas.

Cheers, Eric
