make install-elf && chmod 755 /usr/lib/libslang.so.1.4.9
make elf and make install-elf: These commands create and install the dynamic shared library version of slang.
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.
