transferring Slackbuild packages to other computer

Hello. I just finished building the monodevelop package(including the dependencies). I have other computer that have the same version of slackware(ver 13.0) and I would like to install the packages I build from one computer into other computer.

My question is can I just install all the packages without regards to the order of dependencies (remember, it is already a package) or should I install the package in order? I also ask this for me to know what to do when my new laptop arrive. I would like to install all the SlackBuild packages i have on this computer and I would like to minimize, if not, eliminate the need to build the packages I have already build. Thank you in advance for your answers.

Yes, you can install the packages in any order. Essentially installpkg just unzips the package contents into / and creates any needed symlinks.
