Geeee, I must be a weird person ... ;)

I just downloaded libfwbuilder and fwbuilder,
and ran into the same error on my Slack 8.1
system.

Locate libdns came up with a result, however,
there was no symlink to libdns.so, just libdns.so.5
and libdns.so.5.3.0 ... so, all you'll to do is
ln -s /usr/lib/libdns.so.5 /usr/lib/libdns.so
, and if your Slack 9 is anything like my 8.1 also
ln -s /usr/lib/libisc.so.4 /usr/lib/libisc.so

HIH

Cheers,
Tink
