Making a Java Package for Slack 12

I've just installed the newest update to JRE (1.6.0.U2). It was a fairly straightforward process using the instructions on the website.

How is it possible to make a Slackware package from this? The installer is a bin file. I thought I'd try checkinstall, even though this is meant for creating a package from source, but it didn't work.

Grab the Slack build script, for the JRE, from the Source CD, or from the Web Site, and see how Pat does it.
