I tried several clients like Deluge, KTorrent, qBittorrent, Transmission.
Then tried rtorrent + rutorrent webui and never looked back.

I donwloaded qbittorrent for 12.2 from slackbuilds (mine is 12.0). They give the following tree:
Code:
qbittorrent ----qt4 
             |
              -- libtorrent-rasterbar
                   |
                    -- boost
In /var/log/packages I don't have neither qt4 nor boost. But boost is too big although it's for 12.2! I think you are speaking about 13.x.

Well, you didn't share that information earlier, so I assumed you use 13.x

If you want really lightweight tool, maybe you should try aria2 ( http://aria2.sourceforge.net/ )

I was using rtorrent but is not updated very often (for like a year and a was having some problems), but now I use transmission-demon with a python script, for the CLI, which name is transmission-remote-cli.py, looks similar to rtorrent and works good too, I use magnet links and .torrent and is fine for me.

Speaking about torrents.

I'm already using rtorrent and happy. Good user manual. A question off thread: what happens if I rename a torrent filename? Of course, I mean the .torrent file.

EDIT: I posted without bothering to think first.I copied the torrent, renamed it and ran rtorrent on it, and it worked the same as before which, on the other hand, has logic.

rtorrent can maintain a session directory to store .torrent files. This session directory can be made relative to the directory where rtorrent is run, so it is possible to run two or more rtorrent sessions in different directories. Furthermore, the session directories store .torrent links, so one can do a load or load.start in the rtorrent session and enter a torrent link direct from HTTP or even magnet links.
