sbopkg Unknown token error

I'm trying to build ffmpeg using sbopkg passing on the configuration DC1394=yes. I have libdc1394 installed. I've tried varations of
sbopkg -i ffmpeg DC1394=yes
with and without quotes and I cannot seem to get it to build.

I've google'd and read the man page but I cannot come up with the correct solution.

This is for Slackware 14.

sbopkg -i ffmpeg:DC1394=yes
from "man sbopkg"
       -b PACKAGE(s)/QUEUE(s)
            Build packages of the argument(s) from  the  active  repository.   If
            more  than one package is specified, they may either be quoted or the
            switch can be given multiple times.  Using this second form, a colon-
            separated list of options may be given.  If whitespace occurs between
            the colons, it must be quoted.

            For example:

                   # sbopkg -b "foo bar"

            will build foo and then bar.


                   # sbopkg -b app1:opt1="foo bar":opt2=baz -b app2:opt=mu

            will build app1 with the options ``foo bar'' and  ``baz'',  and  app2
            with the option ``mu''.


       -i PACKAGE(s)/QUEUE(s)
            Download,  build,  and  install  packages of the argument(s) from the
            active repository.

            See the -b option for details since,  other  than  the  installation,
            these two options operate similarly.

Yours works:
root@ambient:/home/jjthomas/Downloads/ffmpeg# sbopkg -i ffmpeg:DC1394=yes

One or more build option files for the ffmpeg
SlackBuild script were found:

Command line options: DC1394="yes"

Use (N)one, (C)ommand line options, or (A)bort?:
