Install skype static with debian amd64

I always download and install the static linked version of skype for linux.

aptitude install alsa-base ia32-libs
wget http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-beta-static
tar xfj skype_static-2.1.0.47.tar.bz2 
cd skype_static-2.1.0.47/
mv skype_static-2.1.0.47 /usr/share/skype
sudo mv skype_static-2.1.0.47 /usr/share/skype
sudo ln -s /usr/share/skype/skype /usr/bin/skype

But then, when you run skype…

skype
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion
`_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT'

This bug with ia32-libs is solved with david’s solution.
