Chromium fail to build - ninja not found

Version 34.0.1847.116 of Chromium fails to build with :
chromium.SlackBuild: line 346: ninja: comando não encontrado
chromium.SlackBuild FAILED at line 346
Maybe this is a patch file error?

No, you just need to install ninja. It is a build tool like 'make'. You do not need ninja to run Chromium, just when compiling it.

The SlackBuild has these notes which you probably overlooked:
# Build needs: multilib gcc & glibc for compiling the Native Client (64-bit);
#              libelf with '-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64' added to CFLAGS (32-bit);
#              ninja.
