You will also need an ancient version of qemu, specifically the one
built by http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.0/system/qemu-legacy/

If there's still mention of kqemu in the qemu README, that's a bug in
the README (kqemu support was removed after qemu 0.11.1).

Plus I'm pretty sure that it's not possible to build kqemu on modern
(3.x) linux kernels. At least, there's no kqemu SlackBuild for Slack 14.0,
and the one for 13.37 fails to build on Slack 14... if that's the case,
the qemu-legacy package on 14.0 is also pointless I think.
