They may not exist. The Slackware community is a small but active 
bunch. Because the creator of the Slackware distribution has chosen 
not to include many recent packages of interest (like boost) and 
because the exact placement of these packages is not trivial the 
Slack community has offered many unofficial scripts.  Other 
platforms have their own communities who may  not feel the need for 
unofficial scripts.  Slackware has the combination of conservative 
management and savvy users/enthusiasts to encourage techhies 
like "alien" to fill in the blanks for the rest of us.
