Read the UPGRADE document in the slackware tree. It will tell you how, by going into init 1.
It might be better to just re-install as about 60% of the packages would be upgraded.
if you must try it, the best way is probably to boot Slackware setup (from floppies or CD1) and mount the partition, then run package tool there and remove the packages. then install the new ones manually or with setup.
I checked the libraries provided by aaa_base, I have more recent version for all listed, I suppose aaa_base is installed at setup stage of the slackware installation to procure a minimal compatibility without install additional library package.
