Why would you want to do that?

Slackware is designed a certain way, to work a certain way, for a reason --- with a plan.

You could also remove the engine from a Ferrari, and mod the whole chassis and drive train and insert an engine from a Volkswagen ...

I never do this way, but if somebody doesn't want to install something system wide or doesn't have an access, there is a possibility to run the program locally.

If you don't have root access, you (a) cannot install Slackpacks or (b) install anything in /usr/lib or /lib on a properly setup Slackware system. There's nothing in xine that's user writable in Slackware except ~/.xine

An easier method would be
Code:
/sbin/installpkg -root /some/other/root package.tgz
Edit: changed installpkg to /sbin/installpkg, since /sbin isn't in user's PATH.

For package to work it is not necessary to be installed. It is like after ./configure and make. You can run package from its home directory without issuing make install.
