[Slackbuilds-users] Trying to make a slackware package of this app...

Hi gang,

  I'm not a programmer, never had any formal schooling at all on it and have
  learned what very, very little I know about it from just 'playing' through
  all these years.

  I've found and used this app for about 6 months now and I think it would make
  a very nice addition to the slackware repository of apps, as it's very useful
  to all kinds of users from linux newbies to scientists and such.

  It's a python app called convertall <http://convertall.bellz.org/index.html>
  though and I can't seem to figure out how to get it to build.

  It took me a couple hours to get past the "can't find program" message to it
  now doing "find: invalid expression; I was expecting to find a ')' somewhere
  but did not see one."

  I know everyone's busy getting all their packages updated to run on 14.0, but
  if anyone happens to find a spare minute or two, if you wouldn't mind, give
  me a pointer or a nudge in a direction I could/should try to get this going.

  Luckily it's a small tarball (60kb) so at the hope of not getting too many on
  the list po'd at me, I'll include my slackbuild script and the .info file as
