Are you perhaps using an automated tool to grab Sbo scripts (e.g. sbopkg)?
If so, you will need to specify which tarballs you want.  I am not sure if
tyat can be encoded on slackbuilds.org.

For pure Slackware64, you need only download
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.yy.zz-no-compat32.run version and for multilib only
the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.yy.zz.run version.  I am fixing the default to
-no-compat32 but either one will work to get the nvidia kernal module for
either system.

You! What PLANET is this!
