You could try creating a 64 bit chrooted environment to build
packages in. I do that for a few things that fail on multilib.

Basically you install slackware into a directory. Once done, you can
get a root login by typing:

chroot /path/to/chroot /bin/bash

installpkg has a --root option which you can use to installl packages
anywhere you like.


Three great scientific theories of the structure of the universe are
the molecular, the corpuscular and the atomic.  A fourth affirms, with
Haeckel, the condensation or precipitation of matter from ether --
whose existence is proved by the condensation or precipitation ... A
fifth theory is held by idiots, but it is doubtful if they know any
more about the matter than the others.
