Out of curiosity... why did you submit it? It's not a dependency for
anything and it doesn't look like it does anything by itself (not an
application, just libraries). Nothing wrong with submitting something
like that, but if you also don't know if it's packaged right...

My suggestion to you: find something (anything) that depends on
jogamp, possibly in some other distro's repo (arch, gentoo, ?) and
do a SlackBuild for whatever it is, and see if it builds correctly
against your jogamp and runs correctly once installed.

Without something to test the libraries with, nobody is going to be
able to predict whether they're installed correctly or not.
