[LAU] Music - Skype and idjc on 64-bit

I am trying to get Skype working with idjc (Internet DJ Console) so I can play music on Skype.
I run debian sid amd64 on AMDX2 dual-core.
I got standalone Skype Beta (static version) working with webcam.
I followed this Ubuntu guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=577914 to get Skype playing with idjc and JACK but its written for 32-bit.
I compiled idjc (64 bit) ok using this page http://www.onlymeok.nildram.co.uk/download.html with plain ./configure command.

idjc starts ok, loads, plays tracks ok.
When I start Skype from the terminal I get

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:866:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c:558:(snd_pcm_dsnoop_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm.c:2106:(snd_pcm_open_conf) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_jack.so
(repeats many times)

I think/hope I got all deps and build deps including lib32asound2 and lib32asound2-dev and I definitely got /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_jack.so on my system.
I got ia32-libs.
Do I need linux32? I already have a 32-bit chroot.

Any help appreciated!

PS: When I Skype my bro in California from Australia we get a time lag between 0.5 and 1 second so live jams are not on :(
