Like many others, I use my own solution for automating what I need
automated. The most appealing thing about slackbuilds.org is its ability
to be done manually or scripted, and both are equal. I will always
favour the manual method, in terms of design. Let the scripters adapt to
the manual method; otherwise we run the risk of forcing people to
unravel scripts in order to do things manually, and I don't care for that.
I have not noticed any kind of failure with the tool chain, but I
suspect that this is because I use my own tool chain and perhaps you are
speaking of specific ones?
