wget 1.19.1 in Slackware64-Current needs libidn2

Hi everyone. Noticed that after upgrading to wget 1.19.1 on Slackware64-Current that some of my scripts which using wget were failing giving me the following error message:

This version does not have support for IRIs
Doing some digging, and it appears that libidn2 is required to support IRI, as I see this when I try to compile the source using the Slackbuild script:

checking for library containing idn2_lookup_u8... no
configure: WARNING: *** LIBIDN2 was not found. You will not be able to use IDN2008 support
configure: Summary of build options:

  Version:           1.19.1
  Host OS:           linux-gnu
  Install prefix:    /usr
  Compiler:          gcc
  CFlags:              -DHAVE_LIBSSL  -DNDEBUG -O2 -fPIC 
  Libs:              -lpcre -luuid -lssl -lcrypto -lz

  GPGME:             no
  IRI:               no
For now, I've reverted back to wget 1.18 from Slackware64-14.2, but was just wondering if libidn2 is going to make an appearance in Slackware64-Current so that wget can be recompiled with IRI support?
