Blender (2.63a from SBo) starts fine here on Slackware -current 64 bit, using the radeon driver.
Which video hardware with which drivers are you using?
How have you updated your system?

You are either using Slackware 14 or Slackware -current, but never Slackware 14 -current.

Anyways, the proprietary drivers from AMD and Nvidia replace parts of the Mesa libraries, so that your driver will break when you overwrite those libraries with a Mesa upgrade. You always have to re-install the drivers after a Mesa upgrade.
