Bug 141947 is not relevant as noted in the comments on that bug already
if slang-2 is a pile of crap in Gentoo, then i'd just as soon punt USE=slang from nano. it's inferior anyways to ncurses.

It works, the lib is just renamed (in gentoo) from libslang to libslang-2 (slot=2).
Please see bug 209416
verified that sys-libs/slang-2.1.3 is sane and nano works with it as is.
