A SlackBuild script.... not that I know of, but one quick google search
for "VLC SlackBuild" turned up this.


It does come with this huge disclaimer though, which easily explains why
it's not at SBo.

# NOTE: this SlackBuild is a monster - it tries to wrap all dependencies to
# vlc into the resulting package by building these deps as static libraries
# and then in the final stage linking vlc against all the static libraries.
# The resulting package has all the vlc functionality and does not depend on
# any software that is not present in a standard full install of Slackware.
# This makes my package quite different from all the other vlc builds
that are
# floating around on the Internet.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
