For an experienced user, this sofware provides a way to centralize source
installation, keep track of already installed packages and their relevant
files, check installations for consistency, and have enhanced uninstallation.
For the novice but interested user, this software also offers a way to gain
confidence with the command line (yes really), the file system, the traditional
UNIX commands, and of course with common source configuration and installation
procedures and options.
The software is targeted at UNIX-like systems, and should work on recent
UNIX-likes, with GNU/Linux as the primary target.
Please report any portability problem you should encounter.
