In order to keep it 'clean', you can still create a package when installing from source. That way you still keep track of the installed files:

After the usual ./configure and make bit, create a temporary build directory

$ mkdir /tmp/package-build
As root, make install with that build directory as destination

# DESTDIR=/tmp/package-build make install
And create a slackware package

# cd /tmp/package-build
# makepkg /tmp/package-version.txz
