In the past, Slackware updates seem to catch up with the Emacs updates. If you want Emacs 23, src2pkg compiles it very nicely. For that matter, just go to the Slackware sources and modify the SlackBuild script used to compile Emacs 22.
I compiled and tested Emacs 23 on Slackware64_13 (stable), but there are some oddities about how 23 displays the buffer list (C-x-b) in a text console that I don't like. Until I get that squared away, I'm going to stick with Emacs 22.
