After doing some building and diffing what sticks out is that in your
log make is including


Whereas my log shows


This is also on a 14.2 multilib system.

Can you test the following change in the slackbuild just after the
CFLAGS= and CXXFLAGS= lines add:

GLIB_CFLAGS="-I/usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX/glib-2.0/include" \

If that doesn't work you could try exporting the variable and remove
the '\' on the end.

It's a bit of a long shot but it may help. Something in your
environment seems to be causing the build process to think it's not
x86_64 for some reason. As others have said, you may want to think
about building packages in a non-multilib VM when this kind of thing
happens. I tend to use a chrooted installation for this because it
takes no extra software and you don't need to boot anything to use
it either.
