Yes that is correct. However, as Willy pointed out in separate email, 
there are errors building Blender with the Python 3.5 series.

I have just uploaded a new SlackBuild for Blender which includes a patch 
to enable clean building of Blender with Python 3.5*. Hopefully it will 
appear in the next round of official updates.

Also, a reminder that due to the versions of openexr and ilmbase 
packages included in 14.1, Blender 2.74 is the most recent Blender 
version which can be built with this script. However the most recent 
Blender (version 2.76b) can be built on -current with this SlackBuild 
just by substituting the version string values; also substituting 
"openjpeg" with "openjpeg1" in the REQUIRES field of the .info file.
