           Summary: virtualbox doesn't compile on x86_64 machines
           Product: Codex
           Version: test grimoire
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: utils
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: pyrobor at ver.si

Checking for compiler.h: compiler.h not found, OK.                              
Checking for 32-bit support:                                                    
  Cannot compile 32-bit applications (missing headers and/or libraries)!        
  Check the file /usr/src/VirtualBox-3.0.6_OSE/configure.log for detailed error
 ! Problem Detected !

When reading virtualbox webpage i find out that x86_64 needs the following

ia32-libs (various libraries needed for compiling the 32-bit guest additions)
libc6-dev-i386 (libc6 i386 development headers)
lib32gcc1 (gcc support for i386)
gcc-multilib (gcc support for i386)
lib32stdc++6 (libstdc++ for i386)
g++-multilib (g++ support for i386)

[taken from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux%20build%20instructions]

Someone should create all those packeges and made them dependecies for x86_64
arch. Or we need to find an alternative way to compile virtualbox. Or maybe add
virtualbox-bin to z-rejected. 

I think the easiest solution is the virtualbox-bin... but I think that
virtualbox.org doesn't make binaries for OSE...
