Yep, something along those lines would work well, I think.  Good idea on 
the symlink too.  I'm going to start working on adding this right away 
because Alan's point about using --delete is well taken.  I need to add 
that in to keep the local copy a true mirror.  Then, I can consider how 
to implement local changes to the SlackBuild that don't get clobbered.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far.  I really appreciate the feedback.
