I don't use Slackware, but on our wiki it makes mention of slackbuilds.org and I found this page for you which may help http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.0/graphics/inkscape/ (hopefully you can just swap out for the 0.48.4 tarball). For Debian based distros though, you can run "sudo apt-get build-dep inkscape" from the cli and which will pull down all the dependencies you need to build Inkscape.

Hope that helps.

In both Slackwaate 14 and Debian wheezy I am presented with a list of
missing or outdated packages when compiling stable version Inkscape
0.48.4. Is there a precompiled version in e.g. tarball or RPM format
that I can install? Or is there a single package of all the lib
packages needed for 48.4? I grow tired of library chasing, especially
on Debian where apt-get simply doesn't recognize the names of the
missing libs.  Here are the missing libs using Slackware 14.0:

No package 'gdkmm-2.4' found
No package 'glibmm-2.4' found
No package 'giomm-2.4' found
No package 'gtkmm-2.4' found
No package 'sigc++-2.0' found
No package 'gsl' found

When I search out and download these I find that there are additional
packages missing.
