This seems to be what Slackware does. I think the best thing to do 
here is just to make sure we use ARCH=${ARCH:-noarch} and not hard 
code it. That way if the package builder is building for x86_64 
then they should be using ARCH=x86_64 ./some.SlackBuild and it will 
have an x86_64 tag on the final package. So far all of the python 
builds I have seen that use setup.py find the right python path 
on their own, so the SlackBuild does not have to be changed in 
any other way.
