It also doesn't mean _no_ distro patches, but they try really hard to avoid them.
One of the biggest things that it means is that the package gets installed where the developer configured it to be installed. You won't ever see a discussion about merging /bin and /usr/bin on slackware, for the simple fact that slackware doesn't overrride the decision from the upstream package as to where it wants to be installed.

some software compiles into local, some doesn't. It varies from package to package.
