I have tested the VLC SlackBuild on Slackware64-13.37. I have an
encrypted LUKS/LVM configuration too. Everything runs fine on my stock kernel. Seems that you ran out of memory during the compile
process, on my system I have 4GB of RAM and 4GB of swap.

I cannot help more than this since my SlackBuild is based on Eric
Hameleers' one, I have only modified it to build VLC only and use shared
libs instead of static libs. You can find it at:
