[Slackbuilds-users] Slackbuild Directories

I'll have to check out sbopkg. Just a thought I had while installing
SlackBuilds recently. Just as easy to type installpkg /tmp/*.txz but
thought a single script would be more all inclusive. My though on the txz
being in the same dir as SlackBuild was for ease of install. Instead of
calling the built package from /tmp/. SlackBuild is awesome in itself. No
doubt. Just was wondering.
