Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
Motor is a text-mode integrated programming environment for Linux. It consists of an editor with syntax highlighting, a project manager, a makefile generator, gcc, ctags, gdb, autoconf/automake and grep front-ends. CVS integration is also provided. It allows one to edit, compile, and debug programs without a need to leave the IDE, automatically check in/out files from a CVS repository and import projects into CVS, and generate distribution packages (tar.gz and RPM). The color schemes are customisable.
stowES (stow Enhancement Script) is a Perl script which tries to ease the use of the "stow" packaging program and software which can be compiled and installed with autoconf. It automates the compilation and installation of software packages and provides some useful functions to maintain your stow packages (e.g., list packages, check packages for integrity, etc.).
WinDriver automates and simplifies the development of user-mode Linux device drivers for PCI, CardBus, ISA, PMC, PCI-X, PCI-EXPRESS, and CompactPCI as well as USB 1.1/2.0. No internal OS knowledge or kernel level programming is required. It supports kernel 2.0.31 and above, including embedded Linux, x86 and PowerPC processors, and any 32-bit development environment supporting C or Delphi. Applications are source code compatible across Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Embedded/Server 2003/CE, Linux, Solaris, and VxWorks.
Makefiles is a high-level build system and suite of portability tools. It is meant to be easier to use than autoconf and generally superior. The package contains a set of rules that allows you to compile structured projects with small and uniformly structured makefiles. All rules are located in a central directory. Compiling the projects on different platforms can be done simultaneously without having to modify any of the makefiles that are located in the projects directories.
Spkgtool is a software management system that uses symbolic links for maintaining packages and a "ports" style backend for building package from source tarballs. It has its own built linking application, but it also can act as a GUI frontend to your favorite symbolic link package system (supporting graft, epkg, and stow). It is written with bash scripts and Makefiles. The GUI is dialog and Xdialog (depending on your environment). Aside from building ports, it will also build and install "GNU-friendly" source tarballs.
MaXPI is a Plug-in for Jakarta Turbine Maven that adds some goals to help Mozilla Application Developers handle daily development tasks more easily. They can create ready-to-code Mozilla Application Directory Layouts based on a POM configuration and easily build Mozilla applications as source and install packages.
