About baghira, please remove it from the repository as it's quite
old(it's not in development anymore) and i can't find a patch to make
it work in -current.

About cmus, these are the new values you should use in its info file:

> Greetings, everyone:
>  We are in the process of (hopefully) finalizing everything for the
>  upcoming Slackware 12.1 release, and while we think we've got most
>  of the major issues handled, there are a few things that might still
>  need to be addressed.
>  First, we have a short list of things in the 12.0 tree that won't
>  build on -current, so if the maintainers of these (or anyone else,
>  if so inclined) would like to investigate them and try to find a
>  solution or update the script for a newer version, we'll try to
>  get them included if you get them to us soon enough.  See the end
>  of this mail for a list.
>  Second, if anyone is aware of any *critical* updates that are needed
>  to anything, drop us a note in this thread.  Note that this is NOT
>  for routine version bumps (those can be handled after the tree opens);
>  instead, this is for things that have security fixes in newer versions,
>  scripts in which we patch around a problem for -current but newer
>  version eliminates the need to patch, and other similar issues.
>  The following items should be ignored - they have already been handled
>  by us or others (in no particular order):
>  all of the perl stuff (to use vendor_perl), matchbox-panel, brutalchess,
>  wormux, inkscape, OpenAL, picasa, exo-notify, libexif-gtk, libgdiplus,
>  wxGTK, transcode, synaptics, xorg-server-xephyr, and perhaps a few others
>  that caught version bumps but weren't noted as problematic before.
>  Again, requests for routine version updates will be ignored (and perhaps
>  ridiculed)  ;-)
>  Here's the list of things that either won't build on -current (for whatever
>  reason) or we don't have valid download links for the source code and
>  nobody was able to find time (or perhaps interest) in updating:
>  baghira, erlang-otp, zaptel, rtl-wifi, stardict, google-desktop, moodin,
>  webpy, python-levenshtein, cmus, ekiga, and skype
>  Thanks in advance,
