OK, I patched /usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh and this works fine:

--- core-functions.sh_orig      2010-05-01 20:10:33.000000000 -0300

                        SLACKKEY=${SLACKKEY:-"ARMedslack Security

I could not find any "armel" packages, so this should be safe.

I'll send the patch to PiterPunk as well.
