Possible problem with jdk SlackBuild

I haven't installed the package yet because I got 17 warnings at the end of the build; yes I was in root's environment.
# I snipped it here, no warnings above

Slackware package /tmp/jdk-7u25-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz created.

root@work-horse:/home/mick/Downloads/jdk# md5sum jdk-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz 
83ba05e260813f7a9140b76e3d37ea33  jdk-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz
md5 is correct according to the site.

All warnings are to do with "zero length file". I don't want to install it in fear of further issues. Note most of the warnings contain "netbeans", that is the whole point of my exercise, to install netbeans.

I have plenty of disk space, 2Gb RAM, intel core2duo ~2.8GHz (hp machine) running slackware64-14.0.
Mods from standard are kde-4.10.4 (Alien, no trouble for over a month) and rurario's latest-chrome script, some packages built with slackbuilds and some personal scripts, all of which seem unlikely to be the cause. The machine is updated weekly with slackpkg (manually).

List of /tmp/SBo (- package*)

Any clues? TIA

Later: similar thing happened with the netbeans slackbuild which leads me to believe it's either harmless or a local problem. BTW, tried jdk twice before OP, identical result.

It's safe to install the package
the warnings came from a zero length file, meaning a file without any content at all and it's harmless to your system

Ok, thank you willysr. If you saw my update, I was beginning to think I jumped the gun, but better to ask the question than to be dumb! I need it for some study and this is my work horse. I'll mark solved.
