there are sure a lot of 'warning: depreciated' signs


watching a package building script (slackbuild) going by... there are sure a lot of warnings about depreciation. does that mean the packages are likely to not work?

No, not usually. They mostly mean that the compiler is much newer than the programmer's habits and/or sections of the code, and are intended to notify code authors of things that are changing. I seriously doubt there is much code out there that does not generate some of these, but older code will likely cause more.

Also, the GNU compiler (gcc,g++) is noted for being very verbose in the messages that it generates, but no harm.

As long as it compiles without actual errors, it will almost certainly work as intended.

Just as an aside, it's probably "deprecated," not "depreciated." (I know how hard it is to catch those messages as they fly by on the screen.) Wikepedia has a nice article on what it means: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deprecation

Yes, well, good thing I'm learning Linux and not writing the next Strunck & White edition.
