Yes, this is an option. The 6.6.1 was not completed though: I started
contributing to XMonad and I needed to use the darcs version of many
packages, so I never finished my SlackBuild collection.

I'm trying to finish the SlackBuild scripts with the 6.8.1 tool chain.
Then I will be able to submit the packages to linuxpackages.org and
slackbuilds.org (and possibly slacky.it too ;)

BTW, you can add http://gorgias.mine.nu/slack to the list of
repositories in your slapt-get/swaret configuration file, and then use
"slapt-get --search" to search for the packages you need (this way you
may search many repositories at once - slacky.it should be one to have
in you configuration, since packages quality is quite good, better
than linuxpackages.org in my opinion).

This is the way I go (well I actually prefer slackbuilds.org
recently, and then build my own).
