You may use any install prefix you like, it won't change anything. I 
guess you have some missing dependencies, which may not be easy to get 
under Slackware. That's exactly the reason why I switched from Slackware 
to RedHat more than 10 years ago. I think Slack got some sort of package 
management in the meantime, but I would suggest you change to a well 
supported distro with package management like Fedora, Debian or Ubuntu. 
I know it is a big hassle to change to a new distro, but believe me, it 
is worth on the long run. I had no trouble on a Fedora Core 7 system to 
follow what is described here:

I used Slackware _a lot_, and was very happy with it, but I never 
regretted the switch to RH. It is a lot easier for me to test new 
programs with RH.
