[Slackbuilds-users] what is the preferred build and test environment

Hi everyone, I use sbopkg for building packages, but for my own slackbuilds
I need to test them on both 32bit and 64bit slackware. Ideally, they would
be clean installs, with just the dependencies required for the build to be
tested. I would like to do this with minimum of fuss, and wondered what you
guys (and gals) did ??
Up till now, I have used 2 separate test machines, or one machine with two
slackware installations on different partitions, but I haven't managed a
clean starting state for each slackbuild. I have somewhat limited internet
data allowance, so don't want to re-download the sbo tree for every
slackbuild when building dependencies. I made limited use of qemu on
windows to run some slackware vm's a while ago, but prefer solely using
linux for testing.
any simple examples or a howto or wiki would be appreciated, and probably
useful to all slackbuild creators.
Thanks, Tim

PS. some builds are for graphical programs that use opengl, I don't know if
that affects the choice of environment or not.
