[Slackbuilds-users] Updating a slackbuild

I'm new here so please be gentle!

I've updated the hyperscan slackbuild to use the latest version 5.4.0 
and i noticed that by default the slackbuild won't build HSCollider 
which is an important testing module in Hyperscan. This is because 
Slackware64-14.2 doesn't ship the required PCRE 8.41. Hyperscan will 
build and use PCRE 8.41 if the source code is available in the hyperscan 
build directory and i've made a simple patch for this, but my question 
is whether it's frowned upon to wget files from within a slackbuild script ?
