Wanted to build/install whaw, but it turns out the link to
whaw-0.1.2.tar.gz is dead now.  In its place are whaw-0.1.3.tar.gz
(ancient) and whaw-0.2.tar.gz (recent), both of which can be found at
http://repetae.net/computer/whaw/drop/ .  I went with whaw 0.2 (
http://repetae.net/computer/whaw/drop/whaw-0.2.tar.gz ), which
compiles and runs as expected and without issue.

The attached patch (very simple; aside from a version change, the
manpage changed places) should make the existing SlackBuild work with
version 0.2's tarball (it did on my system).
