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.
