Last time with a similar update, something broke the package libsigsegv didn’t upgrade, but was uninstalled, and scripts that requires it like cat | grep and similar were unable to work…
In a distribution CDROM or download site, all the files are contained in directories with the relative set name: A - The base system. Each pack's file and directory structure, in fact, reflexes exactly the positions on the system of the files to be installed.
However if you are running an older distribution or for some reason it is not included you can download it from the Slackpkg website. Note: You must use the root user to complete these steps.
As it comes installed no package mirror is selected.

GTK - The GNOME desktop environment, GTK widget library, and the GIMP. The Qt widget library is also in this series, as KDE requires it to function. Daemons, mail programs, telnet, news readers, and so on. TCL - The Tool Command Language, Tk, Tcl X, and Tk Desk. Y - Games (the BSD games collection, Sasteroids, Koules, and Lizards).
