need to install slackware package to gentoo

I have 64bit gentoo on an AMD64 with 32bit compatability, but no ability to compile 32bit programs ( no cross compiler )

64bit mplayer cannot play any formats which require a win32 codec.

so i have downloaded a pre compiled slackware package of mplayer 1.06.

inside the archive, i have found a bin/ and lib/ folder, i dont want to mix these 32bit binary's with my 64bit binary's

maybe i should put /bin/ in /opt. but where should i put the 32bit /lib/ files ?

can i simply copy them to /lib32 ???

thanks .

I wouldn't use a slackware package at all.

Check out the using 32-bit software section of the Gentoo/AMD64 Project Information documentation.
