As far as I can tell, the debian source for deboostrap doesn't have the 
proper scripts to install devuan, but I was able to get it working:

cd /usr/share/deboostrap/scripts
rm ceres
ln -s ceres chimaera
debootstrap --arch amd64 chimaera /mnt/devuan \
http://deb.devuan.org/merged/ chimaera

I guess the other option would be to tweak the slackbuild to use the
devuan debootstrap source. I believe it has the scripts for debian
and ubuntu as well as devuan.

Good luck!
