Question Wine missing libraries in Slackware 13 (need more info)

This is related to this thread, but the way the solution is worded, I am confused. Need some clarification (from "ponce" or whoever would know the answer):

Regarding this post by "ponce":

configure options from alien's slackbuild, it's

(btw I have that libs installed in their 64bit version from,
libxcomposite 64bit should be in the standard X packages )
  1. If the first link is for AlienBob's build, what is the second link for?
  2. Where can I find "alien's howto have a multilib slack"

Thanks a bunch!

Thumbs up Thanks, folks!

AlienBob's "Slackbuilds" of wine (and also wine_gecko) are exactly what I needed! I now have no errors installing or configuring Wine. Off installing I will go...

I read the multi-lib info and realized that's just for 64-bit Slackware, which I don't have. Thanks for the link to your Wiki...I will check it out, and most likely bookmark it!
