I'm trying to make my first SlackBuild script but it doesn't work properly.
The application is aurorae, which is a theme engine for KWin window 

The problem is that the script can't find CMakeLists.txt file. My guess 
would be that it doesn't go to the proper build directory so that it 
fails in cd $APP section.
The output is:
Running cmake...
CMake Error: The source directory "/tmp" does not appear to contain 
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

I know that the script is incomplete but I'm trying to get it working 
before cleaning it up and making it more compelete.

You can find the slackbuild script at my site: 

If there's something obvious to fix, please let me know.

BTW, if you are willing to try to run the script, I renamed aurorae 
source code archive to aurorae-0.2.1.tar.gz because kde-look adds some 
numbers to the package name.
