I was *actually thinking of making one when i made my first slackbuilds thats why i maintain allot of **dependicies** for multimedia.
But since the dependicies are only needed at build time then an SBo slackbuild ain't the best way to build vlc and thats why i didn't upload my vlc.SlackBuild
AlienBOB's SlackBuild is far the best vlc build script for slackware and i recommend it, and you can't make an slackbuild like that on SBo.
So as i see it there is not need for an build on SBo since it can't be as good as AlienBOB's.
