It's a lot easier to just install the 13.1 version of seamonkey (which has all the header files) instead.

The schema problem is easily resolved.  An excerpt from the current doinst.sh file:

if [ -x /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas ]; then
  /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ >/dev/null 2>&1

As was mentioned previously we are in a waiting status right now.  One, we need the proper seamonkey headers.  Two, the current versions of gecko and gnome-mplayer still need some work before they work properly in FF4/Chrome 11.  I might switch to SVN in the meantime.  My current slackBuild is still tracking to the latest release.  I haven't had time to check on this in the last couple of weeks, however.
