Ditto for development/shiboken which is also a hard dependency of FreeCAD.

Others I noticed which should perhaps be saved for similar reasons:

development/snappy is an optional dependency of wireshark and qemu, as
well as being a hard dependency of libraries/rocksdb.

libraries/gl2ps is an optional dependency for both graphics/OpenCASCADE
and academic/octave

libraries/ftgl is hard dep for both graphics/vsxu and misc/projectM, as
well as optional for graphics/OpenCASCADE

libraries/id3lib is an (undocumented) optional dep for multimedia/kodi

libraries/libshout is a hard dep of multimedia/vlc

libraries/libxml++ is a hard dep of libraries/libffado

multimedia/vcdimager is a hard dep for both multimedia/devedeng and

python/pyside is hard dep of development/pyside-tools and both of these
are hard deps for FreeCAD, as well as undocumented optional dep for

Even if they are all (by whatever definition) dead, removal of them
impacts badly on other SlackBuilds that remain. Therefore could I
suggest they be removed from DeadSBoBuilds?
