Good news. Now I will remove the packages. Version 1.7.0 fixes also the compiling bug on 64bit machines: no need to force gcc compiler anymore, the slackbuild works as is.
BTW, I also upgraded Gutenprint to the current CVS version (pre 5.2.10): it should better handle the Canon Pixma printer I own. However, building fails generating documentation, and excluding doc in configure seems to have no effect. My workaround was to replace the /doc tree in the cvs source with the one from 5.2.9 release (documentation seems just the same).
