You can run the executable from the untarred archive directly. No need for a special package.
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/vba/ ... z?download

I can not say if there are any important dependencies to fullfil.

Have you also tried mednafen package (in the repository) from gapan?

Unfortunately mednafen hasn't got its online documentation updated for a while.

You should try mfe, the mednafen frontend:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.1/games/mfe/

Don't worry as I'll probably have a package for it soon. ;)

Oh, not the one from the Salix repo yet.

edit: now I see that you've bundled mfe with it :P
