[Slackbuilds-users] why are there SBo slackbuilds with x86_64 (and not the rest of it ...)?

There seems to be a few slackbuilds where there is $ARCH handling for
x86_64, but not the "configure" handling.

These packages put their libs in /usr/lib/ (not /usr/lib64/).

Isn't that wrong behaviour?

Would it be better if there was no ARCH handling at all for x86_64
unless it also handled the configure steps correctly?

PS. Maybe those packages work in pure x86_64 environments? where they
*should* go in /usr/lib/ (not /usr/lib64/ ) ?
