[Slackbuilds-users] Volunteers for deps of gscan2pdf?

I have had requests to ship gscan2pdf in Slint.
Instead I could advise people to use SBo, however it doesn't ship
gscan2pdf, and also miss a few perl dependencies. I can provide a
SlackBuild for gscan2psf but would like that someone provides ones for
the deps (see at the bottom the rationale).
Taking as a basis the deps according to Arch, listed here:
SBo is missing these if I am correct:
Links to their respective package pages for Arch:
Each of these pages have under Packages Actions a link to the Source
Files. In all these cases the only source file is the PKGBUILD
1. I link to Arch stuff instead of Debian stuff, as IMO it's easier to
convert to SlackBuilds than Debian stuff.
2. Of course I could write SlackBuilds myself for the missing ones on
SBo. However, I would rather make SLKBUILDs as convert a PKGBUILD to
as SLKBUILD is way faster and I already have a long TODO list, but
SLKBUILDs of course do not fit SBo.
So is someone interested enough by gscan2pdf to write the SlackBuild
for the missing deps? If yes I will do it for gscan2pdf itself, else I
will write SLKBUILDS when I find the time.
