No, this is how Slackware works. Most server packages do not come 
enabled out of the box. You have to take explicit steps to enable 
them. The setup has a section which does this for included server 

A Slackbuild builds a Slackware package, so it would be wrong for 
builds to assume that the service should be enabled by default.
