Slackware64 multilib - E17 compiling problem?

Recently I switched my Slackware64 to multilib (using Alien's multilib packages and instructions, of course). There were no problems with other compiling, until today when I tried to compile and install E17 from SlackBuilds.

I used sbopkg to make queue, as per README file from SBo, changed arch to x86_64, but after configure process it starts failing with errors like this:

/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.3.3/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -ljpeg
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.3.3/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libjpeg.a when searching for -ljpeg
/usr/lib/ could not read symbols: File in wrong format
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
It is obviously trying to use 32-bit libs for x86_64 packages. Then I removed gnutls-compat32 package, this time compilation went fine for this package, but failed with next one in queue (32-bit fontconfig's libs this time caused problem).

Checked multilib instructions again in case I skipped something, but I did everything as per instructions. I would like to know if there is any other way to compile E17 without removing compat32 packages or I'm missing something obvious?

Thank you!

Next time I'll remember to use search feature! Sorry...

I've had this problem in the past and simply work around it on a temporary basis by moving /usr/lib to /usr/lib32 and then back again when I'm done compiling. There is probably a better way of dealing with this, though :-)
