I included such a note in the README when I first submitted the 
SlackBuild for Blender (built from source code), since it was added some 
time after the blender SlackBuild (repackaged binary). However that 
section was cut from the version that was finally published - I guess 
because the additional notes contained a lot of extra stuff about how to 
build for maximum functionality (some of which impinged on some 
SlackBuilds). Perhaps I should update Blender's README with a minimal 
note about its difference from the blender SlackBuild; then some other
file about build optimisations.
