I would go with chroot myself (and do so on the QuickBuild system). 
Without further information about Slackware I can't help out much more on
this topic; I know Debian provides a tool that can create a minimal chroot
image given only the release codename and URL to package repository. 
Perhaps Slackware has something similar?

Once you have the chroot, it is very simple to use:
chroot /path/to/chroot/root/directory

Then do whatever compilations, etc. inside that shell.  When done, a
simple "exit" command will return you to the host system.
