Stefano has developed this handy script, by the way: "Compare"
"This script is meant for Slackware and Slackware based systems (Zenwalk in particular). It compares the installed packages with the packages on a slapt-get compatible repository (a PACKAGES.TXT file) looking for missing dependencies on your system."

"depfinder finds the dependencies of Zenwalk/Slackware packages and outputs them in a comma separated list, as used in Zenwalk. The dependency list can be output to stdout or to a .dep text file. depfinder is very fast; its speed is mainly due to the C++ code that is used in depfinder to find in which package each individual library is included. It also has support for running multiple jobs, which makes it a lot faster when used with multiple CPUs/cores. depfinder only uses ldd to look for dependencies, so it won't detect dependencies for any kind of scripts (bash, Python, etc.)."
