I think the reason is because it's not compatible with boost version
in Slackware 14.1
Since newer version needs vala 0.20 and updated webkitgtk which are
now available on master, we could try another shot of this package

I will try to build newer version tonight

Don't downgrade LibRaw just because of shotwell :)
