Thanks for pointing to the issues; here are comments on "mine" packages:

I'm probably going to change the SlackBuild for this package soon, so
that sources are fetched from the SVN, as pointed recently on the list
that the SlackBuild for ffmpeg is doing...

I've just posted updates for these two.  Apologies for not tracking
them more carefully - packages get in -current along with KDE 4.x, and
am using these versions from that point.

I orphaned this one, along with OpenSceneGraph (that is its
