The change to libLAS will be fairly minor - not being built against GDAL. As 
far as I know, the only functional change is: "libLAS 1.6+ allows you to 
assign color information to a .las file if GDAL is linked in at compile-time."

libLAS is an optional dependency for a small number of SlackBuilds and I don't 
think the change above will cause any issues, but happy to hear any feedback 
if I'm mistaken.
