hi Scott, as you probably already know our repository supports only
the stable release of Slackware, so it's possible that our scripts
won't build on -current, like in this case.

That said the error seems related to llvm (-current ships 3.4 while
stable has 3.3) and I seem to have found a patch for it in the gentoo
sources: applying that during the build makes it go fine here on a
slackware-current virtual machine.
