This is a problem inherent with external source repositories...
I had a SlackBuild removed from 13.1 as well because of a dead download link.

I found the new link for the sources and took the opportunity to clean
up some other things in the script and will resubmit as soon as this
option is available.

The "DOWNLOAD_ALT" link might work for some people (like me) who have
personal repositories etc.

Giving voice to the admins now... :)
