Sbopkg itself works just fine in -current. However I must point out that the
latest sbopkg release is the beta:


Since that release there has been a bugfix (see r685) + some minor
improvements, so you may want to use the latest SVN version instead.

Or can I build slackbuild packages with version 12.2?

I assume you're on 32 bit.
Most (but not all) SBo scripts work just fine on -current, so you can use
the 12.2 repository. Watch out for SBo packages that made their way to
-current, though (qt4, swig and subversion-bindings come to my mind, but
there are many others).

You're welcome!
