Slackware-current – new multilib gcc compiler suite
The latest update to Slackware-current brought us a new kernel (3.14.5) and a new gcc compiler (4.8.3).
This warranted a build of new multilib gcc packages. Get them from your nearest mirror. I also refreshed the “compat32” layer of packages – this is the set of converted 32-bit Slackware packages which you’ll need at a minimum, so that you will be able to run most of the 32-bit software that is out there.

Remember, a multilib configuration is needed if you want to use binary-only 32-bit software on 64-bit Slackware – think of Valve’s Steam Client, the WINE emulator, the Pipelight browser plugin, Citrix client etc.
