Yes you can get this SlackBuild
It do depends on a ~/.conkyrc. a default one is provided, mine is appended, "man conky" will tell you more.
It is not difficult to configure, though asking for syntax to be used in .conkyrc I was told "look at examples and try", which is not what I expected
Including LUA functions can seem a bit tricky at first but is not really difficult either, see lua.conky and how I made use of it in .conkyrc
I edited the original SlackBuild to add some configure options and edited a few c files (audacious.c, xmms2.c et weather.c) in the source tarball to translate some words into French.
To be able to use the --enable-nvidia configure option (I have a nVidia graphic card) I had to download a source tarball of nvidia-settings and make it to get a needed file libXNVCtrl.a and then made some adjustments so that configure find it where it expects to.
Well, this post is way too long but I'm too lazy now to erase unneeded information.
