Don't packages usually install into /usr/local, when you do ./configure && make && sudo make install? I haven't used Slackware since 1998, but IIRC it kept most stuff in /usr/bin, not /usr/local/bin.

picking compile time options is not patching the software.

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

I actually don't recall any official Slackware packages installing into /usr/local for quite some time (aaa_base notwithstanding). In fact, most patches applied in the official SlackBuilds seems to be related to install paths of various sorts sometimes not being configurable except by changing a file.
