I don't know what counts as 'wrong' really, except maybe the 2 or 3 builds
I mentioned that have %README% and then don't have anything in the README.

Earlier in this thread someone mentioned that the README should always
be read. I'm willing it bet it always is, for people building things
manually with ./name.SlackBuild. The target audience for %README% seems
to be users of scripts like sbopkg or sbo_tools, maybe the authors of
those tools could chime in?
