Even better - there is a --with-bash-completion-dir=DIR option to the 
configure script so the bash-completion package itself isn't compulsory.

To the OP, either install the bash-completion package from extra, or add 
the line:
     --with-bash-completion-dir=/usr/share/bash-completion/completions \
to the configure options in pulseaudio.SlackBuild. That's what will go 
into the amended SlackBuild for the next round of updates (barring any 
new contrary information about the problem).
