That's what happens if you haven't done what's in the SlackBuild's
README, note 2:

2) Google Earth 6 is "LSB compliant" meaning it was built on a LSB system.
   Slackware however does not have that symlink which is part of the LSB 3.0
   specification. You'll need to create the symlink manually after installing
   the package:

            ln -sf /lib/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3

Yes, it's the Google Earth team being silly.
