I have uploaded a source tarball and Slackware package for Sbopkg
version 0.20.0 (version bump!) release candidate 1 for testing.  This
update for sbopkg has many new features and improvements, which I will
describe more specifically in the upcoming release announcement.
However, to entice folks into testing this RC, I will mention that
sbopkg now has a "-i" switch for the cli which will build and install
packages in one go, so with the correct ordering of dependencies, one
might be able to install deps and the final package all at once.

Additionally, in the dialog interface, there is a new 'build queue'
which will essentially do the same thing -- allow the user to create a
list of packages to build, and optionally install, all at once in the
order listed.

Two changes to the sbopkg.conf are needed:  first, the $OUTPUT
variable, which is currently included in the sbopkg.conf file as an
optional, commented out, variable is now required.  If you are not
already using $OUTPUT, then just uncomment it -- or add it; see the
updated sbopkg.conf(5) man page -- from your current sbopkg.conf file
and you'll be all set.  Second, $TERMBUILD is now removed since all
building and installing switches out of dialog and processes in the
terminal.  Showing the build or install process in the dialog
interface was always sort of a hack and was somewhat limiting.

Anyway, if you would like to test, here are links for the source
tarball and package:



Please let me know of any successes or problems.
