I would get the list of packages from the old machine:
packages=$(ls /var/log/packages/*_SBo | cut -d'/' -f5 | rev | cut -d-
-f4- | rev)

and then feed that into slackrepo on the new machine:

slackrepo build $packages
(or slackrepo install if you want to install everything).

If there are any build customisations you've made then it would be
worthwhile looking at the HINTFILE system that slackrepo uses. A default
set for slackrepo can be found at:
