Hmm, yes I know the SBo directory. But I still think the SBo is clean
because we can delete it with no harm. But 'make install' could copy things
to /usr/lib, /usr/bin,etc, it will mixed with other things. We cannot
simplly delete it ;) And as far as I see, not everyone have a dedicate dev
box. Yes, install the package will overwrite things you installed
previously. But I think the word 'SlackBuild' is stand for 'build slack
package' but not for 'mainly build slack package and install xxx at times'.
It could be buggy if a function doesn't live up to its name.

Yes, it's right if you _only_ want qt4 support. So, may be your script is
specialized and not intend for general usage?
