Trouble compiling virtualbox-ose.Slackbuild 3.1.6 on Slackware64 13.0 with multilibs.

Hello there.

I'm having trouble compiling virtualbox-ose.SlackBuild 3.1.6 on Slackware64 13.0 with multilibs made from the Slackware64 13.0 dvd iso.

I've changed arch to x86_64 and libdirsuffix to "".

acpica.SlackBuild built successfully and virtualbox-ose.SlackBuild is attempted built after running ". /etc/profile.d/" as specified in the multilib documentation.

All is well until..
***** Checking libcurl *****
compiling the following source file:
#include <cstdio>
#include <curl/curl.h>
extern "C" int main(void)
  printf("found version %s", LIBCURL_VERSION);
  printf(", OK.\n");
  return 0;
  printf(", expected version 7.16.1 or higher\n");
  return 1;
using the following command line:
g++  -g -O -Wall -o /tmp/SBo/VirtualBox-3.1.6_OSE/.tmp_out /tmp/SBo/VirtualBox-3.1.6_OSE/ "-lcurl "
In file included from /usr/include/curl/curl.h:36,
                 from /tmp/SBo/VirtualBox-3.1.6_OSE/
/usr/include/curl/curlrules.h:144: error: size of array '__curl_rule_01__' is negative
/usr/include/curl/curlrules.h:154: error: size of array '__curl_rule_02__' is negative
..and it abruptly ends.

Anyone able to help me out with this one?

That's wrong but leave ARCH=x86_64
