Usually it is OK to do this. Often you can even do a simple version update for the SlackBuild and install the newest version of your software.
Do keep in mind, however, that sometimes there are enough changes between Slackware versions that might cause the software not to build or run properly. Usually an updated kernel or library is the problem, and a patch might be necessary.
