I'll answer that myself, since I just figured it out.

First of all, Gtkam is abandonware, though it still works.

I've added a total of four patches from Arch AUR, as well as the 
complete french translation, which hasn't been included in the tarball, 
though the release dates back to 2012.


Maybe the Gtkam maintainer could merge this stuff in his SlackBuild?
