How to install Chromium in Slackware?

Here's the directions from the website:

i n s t a l l:

Download data files AND source code. - I did

Untar the data and program files - I did

Set CHROMIUM_DATA environment variable to point to data directory ( i.e. Chromium-0.9/data ) - What the heck does this mean???

Build the source ('./configure; make' should do everything required) - I did: error!

so where so I set the CHROMIUM_DATA environment variable?
is this a programers term?
I've only programed in basic and that was a long time ago. . .
any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe it means that it wants you to type something like
'export CHROMIUM_DATA=<location of data files(I think)>'

Prolly not the exact syntax, I don't use that command often myself.
