[Slackbuilds-users] sqg for teapot

I'm going to recommend teapot be removed from slackbuilds.  Reason for
recommendation is teapot several versions back ditched gtk in favor of
fltk.  The teapot package makes its user manual available when running
teapot in graphical mode under fltk or does it?  If fltk doesn't run
when teapot is run we have a package effectively stripped of its user
manual in both console and graphical user interfaces and a 45 line man
page is inadequate for a package like this.  There is no user manual in
/usr/share/doc/teapot in pdf or html format either so console interface
users can't even use the package.
