slackpkg is included in Slackware 13 so it is a lot easier to use it
now. With it Slackware package system can be compared to OpenBSD: you
can always build a list of extra packages that you have created and
remove packages that you don't need. Official packages can be updated
in one command.

If you want to use Slackware with static linking, you don't need to
track dependencies, so it is very good choice for a base system.
