On Wilson Pilon's website a tutorial on installing and running openMSX on Slackware. The extensive tutorial was written in Portuguese and can be found right here. In many cases, the approach taken also works on Linux distributions other than Slackware. The step by step approach of the tutorial also makes it suitable for people who don't understand Portuguese.

Works the same for Vector Linux (I use 5.01 SOHO).
You can then skip the SDL update. VL has the latest SDL already installed.

Cool. Maybe it work on other distros too, you know, Slackware packages can be installed by :
"tar zxvf package-name.version.tgz -C /"
Only be careful, this can overlap some files, use "/tmp" as "-C" parameter before use "/" and analyze the results.

BTW, thank you Manuel, to post the note, and to fix the little bug in catapult
