Yeah, I just dont let the package manager install code from a tree that changes every day for me, because I care about security and don't feel like letting a program automatically run code from a repository thats already been hacked into at least once.

(^^---this is a blatant troll, I use gentoo just as much as I use slackware)

Seriously I think you are overestimating how difficult it is to build a hardened system from slackware. Sure it takes a while, but it gives you more security than letting portage do it for you.

Remember first you said it was impossible, then you said it was possible but there were no docs, now you say its just rigorous.
