What is in /opt/slackbuilds/ as that is not a default directory for any
programs I'm aware of?

So, are you just wanting to get a list of all the missing packages on the
64bit host compared to the 32bit host and then build them on the 64bit host?

If so, what I've done in the past is get a list of all those programs, add
them into the requires line in a .info, run sqg against that program, then
built everything with sbopkg. When I switched to 14.2, I actually ended up
doing a similar thing, but with slackrepo. I would just put on the command
line all three programs I wanted to install and it figured out all the
dependencies and build order.
