Thanks for the heads-up!

jq 1.5 depends on oniguruma for regular expressions, which isn't 
currently on slackbuilds.org. Although it's now optional, it looks like 
most distros build jq with oniguruma anyway, so for consistency's sake 
I'd prefer to require oniguruma.

So, does anyone want to submit oniguruma? I'd do it myself, but I don't 
really have the time to maintain another package. :( (The instructions 
for installing are here: https://github.com/kkos/oniguruma)
