Case closed, I think.

Top of http://slackware.uk/slint/x86_64/slint-14.2.1/ChangeLog.txt below:
Saturday 23 January 2021
kernel-firmware-20210119_0578970-noarch-1slint: Upgraded.
libgcrypt-1.8.6-x86_64-2slint.txz: Rebuilt
   included /usr/lib64/libgcrypt.la
  included /usr/lib64/libgpg-error.la

It took some time to get that uploaded because of an issue with rsync on the
server slackware.uk that fortunately Tadgy quickly fixed.

Caveat: I have not updated the zillion of dependencies listed there:
