Yeah I finally understood that. And about half an hour ago, I decided - 
finally - to keep your statically linked build. Since I would only need 
the whole load of multimedia libs for transcode, I think I can make my 
life a whole lot easier by using HandBrake, which builds fine on 
Slackware and offers the convenience of building all the dependencies 
linked statically. It's not the most elegant solution, but it works very 



PS: thanks Eric for your script repo at slackware.com! I've been on it 
since six this morning.
