Actually not true. libslirp is NOT a compile dependency, but optional
for user mode networking. Qemu compiles just fine without it.
From Qemu ChangeLog/7.2
The "slirp" submodule / code (which is the code behind "-netdev user" /
"-nic user") has been removed from the QEMU source tree, so you now need
to install your distributions libslirp development package before
compiling QEMU to get the user-mode networking feature included again.
Since Slackware does not have a "distribution package" (SBo provides
this functionality), libslirp is technically OPTIONAL.
I should have been a bit more clear in the README and forgot to add the
--enable-slirp option as a switch.
