Thank you for your answer.  I need to correct some information from my 
previous post: booting from `/` did not work either.  I just assumed it 
did based on previous experience.  But with that successful build on 
development branch, it did not either.

I do not succeed building 6.03 nor 6.04-pre1 on slackware current with 
GCC 9 anyway.  This is why I was using the development branch.

v6.04-pre1 make install and installers were complaining so I used its 
binaries right away as such (I tried both / and /boot/syslinux/)

         dd if=./bios/mbr/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda
         ./bios/extlinux/extlinux --install /
         cp -f ./bios/com32/lib/libcom32.c32 /
         cp -f ./bios/com32/mboot/mboot.c32 /

but in the end I got the same error as previously:

	Failed to load ldlinux.c32
