There's a reason for the discrepancy: Slackware package version
numbers are not allowed to contain hyphens. The - is used as a
delimiter by pkgtools.

memtester is far from the only build that has this 'issue'. I put it
in quotes because it's not a real issue, it's just standard operating
procedure for Slackware and SBo.
