I installed libevent, and that went ok, but following installation of the libevent-1.4.13-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz package I got the following error when running transmission.SlackBuild:

Aren't the SlackBuilds x86_64 capable unless stated otherwise? i.e., when I installed others, they went fine, and when there were two different versions the 32 and 64 bit source had separate links.
Is there an easy way to tell (other than when, for example, NetBeans said there is no 64 bit SlackBuild available) if a SlackBuild is 64 bit capable?
Finally, if I go "multi-lib", and then start installing packages built w/SlackBuilds (or compiling/installing directly from source), will the 64 bit version be built for my platform automatically, or is there some way to choose 64 as opposed to 32 when there's a 64 bit version?
