Then I presume it is not using the new build and still finding
your old install. If building from GIT you must use the right
args to ./configure to ensure it overrides any files instaled
by your distro. Usually something like

  --prefix=/usr --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc

but not sure if this is correct for slackware.
