I'm new to SlackBuilds and therefore first of all many thanks to the 
maintainers for this nice project.

Now, to my issues.

1) I'm missing libraries like BLAS and LAPACK. In the repository I found 
the boost-bindings package which should provide bindings for such 
libraries but the libraries themselves are not available. So I'm puzzled:

- if boost-bindings is not installing them, then this package is 
apparently useless

- if just boost-bindings is installing them, that means I need also 
boost just for getting BLAS, LAPACK etc.

Thus, wouldn't it be useful to have separate packages for BLAS, etc.? If 
this is the case, then I would do some work to prepare them.

2) The Motif library is provided by the repository but lesstif comes by 
default with slackware. Is there no conflict? Should I first uninstall 
lesstif? If not, how can I make sure an application is compiled against 
motif and not lesstif?

Best regards,
