There are many similarities, but the two versions are not equal and
install in different locations.
I honestly don't know about differences in functionality etc.

Anyway, in Slackware-current gdk-pixbuf has been officially added
(Nov.14) so when that becomes 13.2/14.0 we'll have to remove
gdk-pixbuf from SlackBuilds.org.
