No, if I want to compile a program, i have to install the dependencies manually, but I have to use the developer-version of the packages.
Example: I want to compile program A, which depends on library lib-B. To compile and run program A I have to install lib-B and lib-B-dev.
Edit: If you want to use slackbuilds it would be the easiest way to use slackware.
