An updated version of the script introduces a new variable. I use it to trim down my DVD ISO to below 2.4 GB again.
Code:
# If you want to exclude more from the DVD ISO than just the ./testing
# directory, you can add the directories to DVD_EXCLUDES.
# The pathnames must be local to the top level and must start with ./
DVD_EXCLUDES="-x ./testing -x ./pasture -x ./source -x ./extra/source"

Thanks Eric, I was using a similar method, in my case made a quick and simple modification to your script.

Code:
  mkisofs -o ${SLACKRELEASE}-install-dvd.iso \\
    -R -J -V "Slackware-${RELEASE} DVD" \\
    -hide-rr-moved -hide-joliet-trans-tbl \\
    -v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size ${BOOTLOADSIZE} -boot-info-table \\
    -x ./testing \\
    -x ./source \\
    -x ./${PKGMAIN}/kdei \\
    -sort isolinux/iso.sort \\
    -b isolinux/isolinux.bin \\
    -c isolinux/isolinux.boot \\
    -preparer "Slackware-${RELEASE} build for ${ARCH} by ${BUILDER}" \\
    -publisher "The Slackware Linux Project - http://www.slackware.com/" \\
    -A "Slackware-${RELEASE} DVD - build $DATE" .
Now I will just add those excludes to mirror-slackware-current.conf (Thanks for the idea to exclude ./extra/source, total forgot about that one.)

Code:
# If you want to exclude more from the DVD ISO than just the ./testing
# directory, you can add the directories to DVD_EXCLUDES.
# The pathnames must be local to the top level and must start with ./
DVD_EXCLUDES="-x ./extra/source -x ./source -x ./testing -x ./slackware*/kdei"
