Just my observation from the patch, but it seems that the slackbuild is
manually installing it, indicating that there is no 'make install' (or
that the make install is broken).

Of course, this is just an observation from the patch, I have not looked
at the complete slackbuild nor the irqbalance sources. ;-)
