sc doesn't really work in x86_64

The sc spreadsheet app doesn't really work in 64bits. It launches but you're unable to do anything with it, it's not possible to enter any values in the cells or do anything else. It works fine in 32bit though.

To make it work properly in 64bits, you can use this patch, borrowed from debian:

And there is also this patch to make DESTDIR work properly with the Makefile:

It doesn't work in current and 13.1, probably also in 13.0 but I haven't tried.

On my current x86_64 it works fine. I can enter values, export files, etc. Maybe you have not installed some package. Or if you have .smrc file it breaks in some way the application.

Right, it does run fine in current. I thought I had the right sc package installed, but it seems I hadn't noticed that it has been upgraded in current. Case closed I guess.
