sbo_tools [1] has sbo_find and sbo_wwws which can help you to search for an
"slackbuild", sbo_find in a local repository and sbo_wwws in

It's good to see someone doing something like this, since this means that
someone installed Slackware and take his/her time to *improve* the
situation for the installation of packages. There's others projects that
you can check and see if they can fit your needs or maybe you can bring
some new ideas [2].
