I second the idea of using something other than Slackware..  A
distribution with a packaging system that can check dependancies would
probably help you out quite a bit in regards to installing (You won't
end up with missing libraries, for instance..)

I don't know a whole lot about this particular subject, but from what
I've heard, Slackware is sticking with libc5 for the forseeable future
(not a terribly good thing, IMO..).  But, again, I'm not entirely sure
about that..
