The SlackBuild script should do what it has been written for: build a
Slackware package. We are not going to change that by adding feature
You can easily write a wrapper script which also installs the package
afterwards. You can use sbopkg (http://sbopkg.org/) if you do not want
to write scripts but use something which has proven its worth already.

And building in the same directory as the SlackBuild? No idea why you
would want that but try the following commandline to achieve this:

# OUTPUT=$(pwd) TMP=$(pwd) ./some.SlackBuild
