It willl be great to have in repository such a beatiful peace of software. :) More info here. Some other stuff related to MPD:
   libmad - library used by MPD
   mpc - main MPD client (command line)
   ncmpc - NCurses based client
   gmpc - Gnome Music Player Client
   QMPD Client QT3/4 Music Player Client
   Pitchfork - PHP Client (My favourite :) )
Home page of MPD include many other clients. This is just some of them which I'm using.

It would help to know what VL version you are using, jovanoti.
You can't use Slackware 10.x packages if you have VL 5.8 Standard or SOHO installed since they are based on Slackware 11 if I can ermember correctly.
It is very easy to compile the main MPD client with what you have by default in Vector Linux since IIRC all dependency requirements are met.
You build with ./configure && make && make install or in case you want a package you do ./configure && make as regular user and then checkinstall -L as root to build it into a package.

Stop complaining about everything, do something about it instead.

I'm using Slackware 12.  :)  waiting for VL 6. There is no problem to compile it, I'm just offering to include MPD in repository.
Here are some packages I made with vpackager which are not included in official repository.
