You just ran ./build.sh i686?

Huh.  That's odd.

Actually it's looking for

And finding a directory named ".config" under "uClibc++/extra/config".
Which is weird, and possibly the wrong error message.

Which version of slackware, 32 or 64 bit, and what filesystem type is
mounted on /home?  I'll install it in a VM here and see if I can
reproduce the problem...

I note that if you don't need c++ you can uncomment the "export
NO_CPLUSPLUS=1" in your config file at the top of the aboriginal source
and try again.  That skips this whole package.  But I would much rather
debug this properly, which probably means reproducing it here...
