upgrade slackware build e17 enlightenment

i just downloaded the latest e17 slackware build from sourceforge at I would like to update to the latest cvs but i am having problems with prefix paths from the cvs builds, It seems that the slackbuilds from e17 packaged files are scattered all over /usr dir which makes it a headache to upgrade from cvs and the right install paths. by default it wants to install in /usr/local but that would be a headache to install and compile 30 packages using the --prefix option in configure based on where slackware installs its files. Does anyone know of a script or anyway to make the proces easier. Thanks

I made two little scripts to do that some months ago, they probably still work: to get CVS files to make packages from them.
