I have tested working skype 4.3 in slacko64-6.9.6.4 using the tahr pulseaudio-4.0, qt-4.8.5-i686-stripped_5.6.1.sfs, the 32 bit compatibility sfs and a few missing libs which you can take from puppy tahr 6.0.5 (libPNG12 needed,...).

Try skype-4.3.0.37.sfs by loading it with SFS-Load-On-the-Fly. This version uses apulse, all components included. Works well on Tahr 6.0.5
Double check your audio settings (Capture).

here is more about the ALSA PulseAudio emulator :

skype-4.3.0.37-apulse-slacko14.0.sfs is still working despite MS warnings that it would expire end Jul 2017.....

I have a new webcam with a usb mic
Code:
# arecord -l
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: VT1705 Analog [VT1705 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 2: CAMERA [USB2.0 PC CAMERA], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

How should I change /usr/bin/skype to use this usb mic?
Code:
# Uncomment and edit the next two lines to select your audio devices
#export APULSE_CAPTURE_DEVICE=plughw:1,0
#export APULSE_PLAYBACK_DEVICE=plughw:1,0
i.e. what value for APULSE_CAPTURE_DEVICE=?

I would try:

Code:
# Uncomment and edit the next two lines to select your audio devices
export APULSE_CAPTURE_DEVICE=plughw:2,0
#export APULSE_PLAYBACK_DEVICE=plughw:1,0

Skype as we knew it is dead. Microsoft bought it and no longer supports it for Linux. There is a Skype for Linux available but it is not a good substitute at all. Works though

EDIT - From the Slackbuilds site..."**Important notice**

All Skype for Linux clients version 4.3 and older will be retired on
July 1, 2017. To keep chatting, please install the latest version of
Skype for Linux -- the new 'skypeforlinux'"

Also, 32-bit is not supported anymore at all
