Ah, that makes sense.  Thanks, David!  And just so folks know,
development is ongoing.  I am currently working on two new features
(along with bugfixes, of course): (1) the ability to pass along
arguments to the SlackBuilds when packages are built in the dialog
interface (some SlackBuilds offer the opportunity to tune or tweak
things by passing along FOO=bar, e.g.  before executing the
SlackBuild) and (2) the ability to have a $HOME/.sbopkg.conf which
will override variables set in the regular sbopkg.conf file.  Coupled
with this last point is when a user changes the Slackware version in
the dialog interface (i.e. selecting Slackware 12.1) that can now
optionally be saved to the $HOME/.sbopkg.conf so that it will be
picked up the next time sbopkg is run.
