git clone https://github.com/tribad/povmodeler.git
cd povmodeler
git checkout slackware14.x
cmake .
make
make install

A build script will not do anything different. So if you have anything different
than the standard slackware 14 software installed, even the slack-build may
fail.
So doing it the way I described above should be the way if you want more control
on the build process.

The packages I produced are created on fresh installed vms. So they should work
out if the box.

Accessing the repo has the advantage that you will stay up to date to any
upcoming changes. That would not possible with a source package as it only
contains "released" source code.
