I broke bashburn (running SLAMPP 1.1)

First off, SLAMPP 1.1 is designed to take slack 10.2 packages, so that's why I'm using SLAMPP but looking for slack packages.
Now for the embarrassing story. I was compiling a sizable ISO to burn, and made the newbie mistake of not having enough space in which to put it together. I then caused my current problem (I think) by changing the config before I deleted the incomplete ISO. 'Bashburn.lang' ceased to properly exist, and the program will no longer start. The exact error I get is:
root@slampp:/etc/slapt-get# bashburn
/usr/local/bin/bashburn: line 87: /lang//BashBurn.lang: No such file or directory

mkdir: cannot create directory `': No such file or directory
...and then I have to kill the process.
I immediately set out to find a slackware package of Bashburn 1.6.1 or newer, since 1.6.0 is the installed version, and I wanted to upgrade anyway. Unfortunately, I can't find a single bashburn package for slack 10.2.
My next thought was to compile from source. The problem with this is that SLAMPP does not have GCC. On top of that, the system really is being used as a (home network) server, and I have allocated a minimum of disk space (obviously) for the distro. So I can compile it, but that will be a hassle. I would try to compile it on another machine, but I don't actually have Slackware itself, and Vector (my desktop distro), while based on Slackware, isn't close enough to work, at least as far as I know.
Finally, I tried to find 'bashburn.lang', to see if I could just replace it with an original from the source. Sadly, I can't seem to find anything other than the main program, though I dont' know enough to know if I've looked everywhere.
Anyway, that's my problem, that's what I tried to do. Anybody have any ideas?

This is a known problem with previous versions of BashBurn, something is fishy with the install or config script I believe. This should be fixed in the latest version which you can get from the bashburn webpage at sourceforge.
BashBurn is a collection of shell scripts and do not require compilation, so lack of gcc is no problem.
