   I've not let the SlackBuild script download souces tarballs because the
version number needs to be updated with each new build in any case.

   If you wander over to www.r-project.org you can download 2.14.1, change
the version in the script and build it.

   I just did this (downloaded the tarball yesterday but got too busy to
continue then). The upgrade from 2.14.0 to 2.14.1 went as smoothly as did
the previous upgrades.
