After the last two update on Sunday, slackpkg will probably be normal again. Pat has fixed the issue by moving the libcrypto.so.0 and libssl.so.0 back to openssl-solibs and wget is linked against OpenSSL rather than GnuTLS. This way, wget will work as intended and the same goes with slackpkg which depends on wget.
Second update on Sunday fixed another bug on mkinitrd which was discussed on LQ. It also upgraded sox and libspectre.
Both updates should calm down the Slackware users who had some problems after upgrading to previous massive update in -Current tree.
