Ugh.  Yes, they dropped 32 bit a while back, and have gone Ubuntu Unity
centric. I never did get it to compile to my liking on Slack. It looks
like libjlibtorrent has its own github repo so you have to build that
separately, I think.

Anyway, I doubt I'll revisit the issue. I haven't used it in ages. Quite
some time ago, I posted in this list that SBo Frostwire maintenance is
up for grabs. If anyone wants it, take it, and may the compiles be ever
in your favor.
