I like the idea of installing it in /opt
I would become a requirement of python3-dulwich, and the Slackbuild itself would
set the right PYTHONPATH, while not altering the stock slackware's packages.

That does work, I've just removed my own updated setuptools and replaced the
proper slackware one, checked dulwich build still doesn't work, then installed
your slackbuild, and confirmed it builds fine when adding the proper PYTHONPATH
in the SlackBuild script.

In the absence of your package, the dulwich build ignores the PYTHONPATH,
meaning that on a -current box the SlackBuild will also work fine, without 

Please, do submit your slackbuild, it works for me :)

with 26°C during the day already...
