[Slackbuilds-users] several builds crashing looking for old libwebp

NotepadQQ and KVIRC (though newly compiled) both immediately crash for 
not finding libwebp.so.6.  Well, that file is now at libwebp.so.7.0.2.  
King Beowulf told me this behaviour means libwebp is a runtime 
dependency (the SlackBuild maintainers should be aware of) and to link 
libwebp.so.6 to libwebp (which of course itself is a link to the 
7.0.2.)  I did that, then both worked.  Previously the NotepadQQ 
maintainer said recompile/upgrade libwebp, then NotepadQQ... same thing 
happened.  Well, the problem appears to be poor source code in both 
NotepadQQ and KVIRC (most likely) and/or SlackBuilds done wrong.
