I waited for a week before forwarding this to the list but did not get
any reply. I also discovered that Alien Bob maintains a slackbuild for
qemu-kvm, so we could completely drop this.

Hello Stu,

The slackbuild you provide for the qemu-kvm package will end up having
the configuration files in /urs/etc/qemu. Since in slackware /etc is
favored over /usr/etc I think it is probably  better to provide
--sysconfdir=/etc  option to the ./configure script.

Also, BUILD_ARCH="" in line 51 should probably be
BUILD_ARCH=${BUILD_ARCH:-""} to allow to people to choose a different
BUILD_ARCH by externally overwriting the variable and not having to
alter the building script.

Find attached a patch with my suggestions.
