I think that sentence contradicts itself.  :-)

To rephrase my question (which perhaps is more for my personal
education than of general interest, I don't know): can anyone familiar
with HandBrake comment on whether they think HandBrake is doing
something weird / unusual / invalid to cause this problem?

(I noticed that if I reran the line which crashes and burns, but moved
the -L/usr/lib to the end of the line, it happily compiles.  I haven't
had time to investigate why this is so, but perhaps it is obvious to
someone, and if they wanted to share their wisdom I'd be happy to be
educated on this point.)

No one, I'm (pretty) sure.

That seems reasonable.  Particularly if individual maintainers are
aware of the issue.  While no-one is likely to go off and test 3800
builds, a maintainer who is aware of the issue *may* be up to testing
his/her slackbuild on S32, S64 and S64+32.

But I guess the bottom line is that adding
is a non-starter.
