Minor Update to Current

Three days ago, Pat released some minor updates to -current users. Two of the packages were requested by me (dconf and gstreamer) and another two was part of request and bug report from LQ users (llvm and ca-certificates), another two from Robby Workman, and the rest are from Pat.

Dconf is one of the dependency package in MATE Desktop and currently it's provided as a binary package in MSB for Slackware 14.0 as this version doesn't have dconf package. Future MSB release (targeting MATE 1.8) will probably use Slackware 14.1 as the supported base, so dconf (and also itstool which is now in yelp branch) will no longer required to be provided by MSB. They are already part of the Slackware packages.

A surprising news is the availability of Slackware 14.1 Pre-Order (CD and DVD) at Slackware Store. Pat hasn't said anything about Slackware 14.1 RC1 (which is usually the sign of getting closer to final release), but we expect them to arrive soon.
