[Slackbuilds-users] Learning How To Modify A SlackBuild

I would like to upgrade wxPython from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, but I cannot
find a wxpython.SlackBuild that works ... on my main workstation/server that
is still running Slackware-11.0 (because it works).
The process seems rather complicated to me because the source tarball
includes wxWidgets-2.6 as well as wxPython-2.8.x. The author of the
installed package hasn't produced a package with the newer version of
wxPython, and his SlackBuild script is not available on linuxpackages.net.
When I run the package built with the script version I found (one of three
that almost works; it's less broken than the other two), I get this error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "eikos.py", line 280, in ?
frame_1 = MainFrame(None, -1, "")
File "eikos.py", line 66, in __init__
self.mainNB = MyNotebook(self, wx.ID_ANY, style=0)

self.pane_7 = modData(self, wx.ID_ANY)

line 1703, in SetColSize
return _grid.Grid_SetColSize(*args, **kwargs)
wx._core.PyAssertionError: C++ assertion "col >= 0 && col < m_numCols"
failed at ../src/generic/grid.cpp(10338) in SetColSize(): invalid column
Where do I start looking at the .SlackBuild to learn what it's not doing
