toast

toast is a simple package manager for Unix. It automatically locates and downloads source code, determines how to compile it, installs each package in its own directory tree, and makes the resulting binaries available through an encap/GNU stow-like symlink tree. It also supports binary packages. It is often used to install and manage software in a non-root user's home directory.

            I'm fine, thanks -- I just don't think to check for comments here very often. Email is a quicker way to get my attention.
