mkfs.msdos symlink missing in Slackware 13.0

The mkfs.msdos symlink seems to be missing in Slackware 13.0 32-bits. However it is there in 64-bits. This:
suggests that it should be there in both, I think.

Looks like the dosfstools should have been rebuilt for Slackware 13.0.
You can use the "mkdosfs" program instead. The "mkfs.msdos" in Slackware64 is a symlink to that mkdosfs program anyway.

Just wanted to report it. Don't know if it can be considered a bug...
