In what way is it a bummer/show-stopper for sbopkg users?

Without sbopkg:

cd foo && ./blas.SlackBuild        # builds
cd bar && ./lapack.SlackBuild      # fails
VERSION=3.3.1 ./lapack.SlackBuild  # builds

With sbopkg:

sbopkg -i blas -i lapack        # blas builds; lapack fails
sbopkg -i lapack:VERSION=3.3.1  # lapack builds

If you already know about this problem, initially typing

sbopkg -i blas -i lapack:VERSION=3.3.1

should work fine.
