The pkgtools in latest current 64 update is :
pkgtools-14.2-noarch-1.txz
should be x86-64

Should it? I thought pkgtools was written entirely in BASH, with no architecture-specific components.

The $ARCH on the pkgtools package has always been noarch.

YES
My bad
A script I use for updating current was looking for
pkgtools-*.tgz
Instead of
pkgtools-*.txz

I jumped at the wrong solution.
John
[EDIT]
the aforementioned script as it appears in UPGRADE.TXT on the current DVD

"...
2. Upgrade your package utilities and related tools:

upgradepkg /root/slackware/a/pkgtools-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware/a/tar-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware/a/xz-*.tgz
upgradepkg /root/slackware/a/findutils-*.txz
"

Welll... there is no such thing as the "current DVD". So, there is no need to change that text, yet.
Once there is a DVD of a new stable release, this will have been fixed.

Change your script to look for .t?x so it will find both .tgz and .txz packages.

Thanks orbea! That is what I did, just thought my report would save others some time if they ran into the same problem.
