No need for an extra dependency. A .deb is just an "ar" archive that
contains a tarball. It can be extracted in a SlackBuild just using ar
and tar:

ar p /path/to/file.deb data.tar.gz | tar xvfz -

...though I think it's possible for the filename inside the .deb to be
data.tar.xz instead (in which case, use tar xvfJ -).
