Installing tmux on Slackware

Hey guys,

I downloaded tmux 1.3 from slackbuilds

And when I am running tmux.SlackBuild

I get this output:

Configured for Linux

In file included from attributes.c:23:
tmux.h:30:19: error: event.h: No such file or directory
In file included from attributes.c:23:
tmux.h:831: error: field 'name_timer' has incomplete type

tmux.h:1122: error: field 'identify_timer' has incomplete type
tmux.h:1125: error: field 'message_timer' has incomplete type
make: *** [attributes.o] Error 1
can someone advice what I should do, to solve this problem?
