rc scripts in slackware-current, rc.0 missing?

I noticed that that "halt" command ceased to work, I THINK this has to do with upgrading to slackware-current. However I've had similar problems with shutting down due to missing kernel components.

I actually took a closer look at the error message and it complained about the /etc/rc.d/rc.0 script missing, after a look at rc.6 I symlinked rc.0 to rc.6. And what do you know it works, halt and shutdown can actually shutdown the machine properly!

I guess the question is, did my upgrade get botched or is rc.0 gone AWOL?

I did not upgrade. I have a parallel install of current along with 11.0.
My version of current has the rc.0 symlink as expected.

bash-3.2$ ls -la
total 299
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root  1568 2007-04-12 07:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 53 root root  5112 2007-04-12 20:06 ..
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root   144 2007-04-09 19:32 init.d
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     4 2007-04-12 06:59 rc.0 -> rc.6
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  1221 2007-02-16 16:47 rc.4
Perhaps something to do with your upgrade process?

rc.0 links to rc.6 as normal here on my Slackware -current.

It sounds like you don't have the sysvinit-scripts package installed (it was split from the original sysvinit package). That would explain the lack of symlink, and more importantly, it indicates that you did not read the instructions for upgrading (or perhaps you missed that part).
