The cached tarball I've been using sonce was released creates 
directory oiio-Release- (as per the SlackBuild). I've downloaded 
the tarball again and found (as you said) that it now creates directory 
OpenImageIO-Release- It seems they've re-released the tarball 
since the original release.

I've pushed an update to the SlackBuild to accommodate the changed 
tarball contents. It's at 
until next global SBo update.

When rebuilding openimageio, any cached oiio-Release- 
tarball should be removed and downloaded again since the cached version 
will now result in build failure.

The tarball at 
should also be updated (not sure how that's done).
