As nobody has replied, I will guess there is no particular reason 
against having Navit in SBo repositories - so I'd like to try and build 
the scripts for it. As Navit now uses cmake, and I've been scratching my 
head against the cmake docs for a while, is there any project already in 
the SBo repositories which uses cmake - to draw some inspiration as to 
how to include cmake in the .SlackBuilds file and run it in 
non-interractive mode?
