A SlackBuild is nothing but a script. If you want to write a script to
install one binary, I don't see a problem with that. I would make it
clear to the user, in the README file, that it's a binary install, and
make it clear whether it is for both 32 and 64 arches or just one.

But as far as I know, there is no restriction against such a SlackBuild.
