Thanks David.  Yes, sbotools was pointed at current.  I did another 
clean install, because I had no idea what had been pulled from current. 
chromaprint (and vlc) installed cleanly.  And my printer now works 
again; only on cups and not with hplip but that's life.

I was surprised that sbotools defaults to current.  It's not mentioned 
anywhere that I could find.  Maybe that could be included on the 
SlackBuilds page, with what to change it to for 15.0?

Thanks for your assistance,
