[Slackbuilds-users] python3-numpy and openimageio build problems

I have been trying to install Blender (not blender). I noted following 
problems in some of the dependencies:

The tar file is named oiio-Release- but the contents have 
as directory OpenImageIO-Release-
I fixed it by adding/modifying two lines in the SlackBuild:
after SRCNAM=oiio-Release, I added (line 28) EXTNAM=OpenImageIO-Release
and after extracting the tarfile (line 35), I used cd $EXTNAME-$VERSION 

This requires a more recent version of Cython:
RuntimeError: Building NumPy requires Cython >= 0.29.30, found 0.29.27 
at /usr/lib64/python3.9/site-packages/Cython/__init__.py
error: Building python3-numpy failed
I believe that Cython is a slackware own package as I could not find it 
in the SBo.

kind regards
