Your box should allow _everyone_ to write to /tmp ! If it does not,
run "chmod 1777 /tmp" to fix the permissions and reset them to
Slackware's defaults.

That is because slacky.eu scripts are not independent scripts - they
rely on at least one other script (requiredbuilder) that is not part
of Slackware and has to be downloaded from slacky.eu.
You do not need it though - all it does is scan the built executables
and libraries and creates a file with package names which are needed
to fulfill the dependencies for your new package.

One of the two actually - wxGTK is a subset of wxWidgets. You only
need wxGTK on a Linux system.

Cheers, Eric
