Fran├žois Andriot has already built Trinity 3.5.13 on RHEL5, which age is
approximately the same as Slackware 11.0. The KDE e.V. publishes a list
of requirements of KDE 3.5 here:
http://www.kde.org/info/requirements/3.5.php
so it may actually build, with some features disabled, with much older
Slackware versions (Slackware 8.1 is the first one to provide
simultaneously GCC 2.95, zlib 1.1 and libpng 1.2 by default).
Obviously some new packages will be needed (at least CMake 2.8).
