Well... packages that build kernel modules add the kernel version onto
$VERSION (e.g. nvidia_kernel), also some packages add the locale name
onto $VERSION (e.g. libreoffice-langpack)

ffmpeg with $ARCH_custom breaks slackpkg+, I'd be happy to see'
_custom' removed, but ffmpeg was using '_custom' for years before
slackpkg+ was invented .... it's Heinz's decision, however I seem to
remember that the reason for _custom is not so important any more?

Sorry to make this unneccessarily difficult :-/
