[Slackbuilds-users] ois build error

I tried to build ois on a 64 bit multilib system. After the ./configure, 
the make stops with an error

mv -f .deps/LinuxMouse.Tpo .deps/LinuxMouse.Plo

make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I think the relevant part is here the /usr/lib/libX11.so, which is

bash-4.2$ ls -l /usr/lib/libX11.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Nov 24  2014 /usr/lib/libX11.so -> libX11.so.6.3.0
bash-4.2$ file /usr/lib/libX11.so.6.3.0
/usr/lib/libX11.so.6.3.0: ELF 32-bit LSB  shared object, Intel 80386, 
version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped

I believe this should be a 64 bit version to link against? Actually, 
make should use the one in /usr/lib64 instead. Could this have been 
caused by installing multilib?
