w3m continues Edbrowse?

Quick and ugly way (but which worked here) for Slint:

mv /usr/local/libduktape* /usr/lib64 

Usually this is taken care when building a package by the packager, just setting
a variable like e.g. --prefix=/usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX <some command> where the
valiue of LIBDIRSUFFIX can be null or 64.

But a lot of software use /usr/local by default, in order to not mess the
"system" location /usr with files installed by and for a specific system. An
"official" binary package (build by and for a distribution) instead do not use
/usr/local, but that's managed by the packager, not by the upstream developer. 

Also most distributions put the system libs in /usr/lib, but Slackware
and Slint in /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 for 32 bit or 64 bit libs respectively
because they are not multilib. Sorry for the gory details.
