Keepassxc 2.7.5 has been released with Botan3 support (it compiles and
works fine with both botan 2 and 3). I will submit the updated slackibuild
BTW, looking at Botan it looks like Botan 2 and 3 can coexist. the
libraries are names libbotan-2.so.* and libbotan-3-.so.*. the only common
file is the botan binary but that can easily be fixed by calling them
botan2 and botan3 maybe?
