Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you installed to a different prefix other than /usr, basically --with-xmlrpc= is supposed to be the path to xmlrpc-c-config, might be useful to use:
command -v xmlrpc-c-config # You can use which(1) too, but I hear it does a similar job just as an external tool rather than shell built-in
4. Follow the "Rtorrent Setup and Configuration" section in the MainInstall document. They have a pre-set .rtorrentrc that you might want to use for the separate rtorrent user.
5. Download and unpack the rutorrent files into some place your web server has access to (I'm assuming httpd for the rest of this since that's default on Slackware 14.1).
I'm not completely sure how secure the instructions in step 6 are, but that's what the rutorrent documentation says to use.
7. Setup your web server and firewall to allow access properly, and then just point your browser to rutorrent (locally it may be something like http://127.0.0.1:80). This is assuming you're using port 80 for httpd.
If you're looking for just a basic, simple GUI torrent client, rutorrent might be overkill. It seems to be more commonly used to provide torrent client services on a local network.
You might want to check out qbittorrent and its underpinning Bittorrent library libtorrent-rasterbar. It is light-weight (low memory usage), very fast, supports more bittorrent features than many others, has a web interface, uses watch folders, can do sequential downloads and has a Qt based GUI similar to mutorrent.
