Trouble with Icecat-24 Slackbuild and dangling symlinks

Was using sbopkg to install Icecat and ran into a slight bump.
While building, a set of three errors stating "chmod cannot operate on dangling symlink" relating to 3 .xhtml files appeared and are preventing completion of the work.

Any ideas as to how to fix this?
I'm not exactly new to Slackware but even this one had me stumped as I've never seen this before and I can't find anything on Google relating to this error in the build.

Thanks in advance

Can you post the error message?
Those message should be safe to ignore since it happened on other packages as well, but it will not prevent from building

chmod cannot operate on dangling symlink './browser/base/content/abouthome/.#abouthome.xhtml, #aboutDialog.xhtml, and in /branding/unofficial.

But it looks as though you were correct. I was merely impatient it seems as I let it run for a few more minutes after you mentioned that and it's much farther than previously.

I'm sorry to have wasted your time Willy.
