The other thing you might do: make your own bindist. Bootstrap it
on your own system (not as part of the submitted SlackBuild), then
host your Slackware-built binary package somewhere, and the SBo
build can just download & make a pkg out of that. It would simplify
the SlackBuild, and save your users some time... but it would also be
a single point of failure: the script would depend on private state that
exists only on your system.
