I don't get this. The other thread mentioned a total of six SlackBuilds 
having non-working download links. Yet this branch will touch and change 
around 650, completely ignoring the respective maintainers who might have 
a reason for preferring search.cpan.org to metacpan.org and sticking to 
the download links either of them provide.

Besides... a broken link often is an indicator for a SlackBuild in 
neglect. It's better when these get reported on the mailing list than 
having a nicely working download link for a version that's missing 
important bug or security fixes.
