> I have a few comments on the Slack Build files for the
> dvisvgm (DVI to SVG converter), as a standalone package in graphics/:
>    - dvisvgm.info points to a broken download link of its source.
>    In fact, this old release is at
>    http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvisvgm/files/dvisvgm/old-releases/1.4/dvisvgm-1.4.tar.gz
>    Besides, the  current version 1.11 <http://dvisvgm.bplaced.net/Downloads>
>    is available at
>    https://github.com/mgieseki/dvisvgm/releases/download/1.11/dvisvgm-1.11.tar.gz,
>    which appears to build and run well.
>    - doinst.sh of the package requests to run a non-existent gconf config
>    source "blah.schemas".
>    - dvisvgm.SlackBuild attempts to make symbolic links outside of the
>    installation package

>>    ln -s /usr/share/texmf/lib/libkpathsea.la /usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}/
>>    libkpathsea.la

It's already fixed on my branch
