sbopkg saves me a lot of time.

It's not a silver bullet since sometimes it barfs at things like broken download links, so it still requires a bit of manual intervention. But if you're at the point of getting tired to run slackbuilds manually and track dependencies the same way, sbopkg is a good tool. It doesn't break the vanilla Slackware, it just runs on top of it, so I guess it is as "Slackware way" as anything else that doesn't interfere with vanilla Slackware, be that manual intervention or some other third party tool.

I don't know how well sbopkg plays with tools like ansible because I've never tried that (yet).
