Libreoffice 4.0 change packages names, Slackbuilds doesn't run

Until Libreoffice 3.6.5 I had no problems to update Libreoffice using Slackbuild scripts (Slackware64-13.1), but as the version 4.0.0 changed the way they name theirs tgz files, I cannot run the Slackbuid to build it (the previous versions I just change the versions and build in the script, but now it doesn't work anymore). Does anyone have a Slackbuid for Libreoffice 4.0.0 (Slackware64-13.1), please?

Using Alien Bob's package is easier and quicker but if you still prefer to make your own using the SlackBuild script, change the version # like you've been doing previously and then until the script gets updated, change line 83 to follow LibreOffice's new naming scheme.

Thanks, slouchfuzz and w1k0.
PS: Libreoffice 4.0 is installed on /opt/libreoffice4.0 instead of /opt/libreoffice3.6, then some changes have to be made to Slackbuild script as well.
