Point is it doesn't work properly on a 64bit system: it builds fine, but if you run it from console, you can see it fails to access the imlib2 library, because it has /usr/lib hardcoded, while Slackware64 uses /usr/lib64.

I fully accept the responsibility for spending time trying it, but if it wasn't there (since it doesn't work on Slackware64 as explained above), I surely wouldn't go as far as trying to write my own buildscript just for that.

Perhaps in the future it will be at least possible to tag them as archived and have an option to filter them when listing/searching?

Same for me. Keep the good stuff. I have tried 64 bit several times and
I had to come back to 32 bit always because of the stuff that was not

Plain 64 bit looks nice. I tried it with gentoo, but as soon as some
packet insists on multilib and some printer or other hardware only has
drivers for 32 bits - things start to brake and the mess comes down in
an avalange.

Slackware is a lot easier to repair than ... and moving things built on
one machine to the next without reemerging the world is like a free
refill of your coffee without the expense of buying a coffee in the
first place.

Slackbuilds.org is a wonderful warehouse but I do not intend to install
everything that is in the catalog. If you want a system where everything
fits together, then plain Slackware 14.2 might be the right place to try.

Kind regards
