[Slackbuilds-users] need some advice (re: splix/jbigkit SBos)

Hi all,

I've been maintaining the SlackBuilds for splix and jbigkit. For a 
while, printing has been an issue with my Samsung ML-2510, but I've 
been too lazy to follow it up (obviously I don't print at home very 
much). Not very responsible of me.

Anyhoo, the root problem is that splix development appears to have 
stopped -- or at least greatly slowed. The current version of splix 
looks for the library libjbig.2.0.0 ... but the current version of 
the jbigkit library is libjbig.2.1. splix looks for v. 2.0.0, can't 
find it and plotzes.

I solved the issue on the home front with a symlink, but was wondering 
what SlackBuild best practice I should use in a case like this. Should 
I roll back the jbigkit version?
