Install slang by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install && make elf && make install-elf && make install-links && chmod 755 /usr/lib/libslang.so.1.4.9
As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save that the library directory i.e., /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib should appear in /etc/ld.so.conf so that ldd can find the shared libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run while logged in as root.
The slang package contains the libslang libraries.
