I don't know if Slackware has RPM installed but you can always download the newest versions from RPM at ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-x.x.x they have there also tar.gz files.
You can try the i386 files which contains the binary or the normal file which contains the source
for example : rpm-2.5.2.tar.gz for the sources. You only have to compile it :)
