Unfortunately, if you are going to really test the scripts as a normal user you still have to comment out the "chown root:root" line in all of the scripts.  You could probably safely sed all of the *.SlackBuild files, but ideally all of the scripts would have one switch to allow you to test the SlackBuilds as a user.  Activating the switch could skip the chown line, change TMP so it's under $HOME, and change the build tag (say _SBo-test) so the created package is flagged as a test package.

Perhaps in the future something like that could be added to the template and then all of the current SlackBuilds.
