That's diff(1).

Given the history here, I think the best option is for you to 
do similar to what (probably) many others here do:

Create a virtual machine of each Slackware version you run.
Create a snapshot of it using the virtualization platform.
Build packages on that virtual machine, put them somewhere
else, install them on the other hosts from that location.
Revert the virtual machine state to that prior snapshot.

As /patches are issued, update the virtual machine, take a
new snapshot, repeat process as needed.
