Well, I got the code from the svn repository quoted in my shell output:

/home/joel/SlackBuilds/rep-gtk: ZShell>  svn co svn:// rep-gtk

Is this repository out of date or out of synch?

I can't locate this line in the or resulting Makefile.
Nevertheless adding "--tag=..." to the only line I could find doesn't
