Paco (pacKAGE oRGANIZER) is a simple, yet powerful tool to aid package management when installing programs from source code. It uses the LD_PRELOAD method to track package installations, and provides various options to keep the installed software organized. It's mainly a command line application but it has also an optional GTKMM interface.
The following patch fixes a little but annoying bug in paco-1.8.0:
Some rubbish appear when listing the missing files:
To apply it you should do the following after unpacking the tarball:
patch -Np0 -i <path/to/the/patch>
Then 'cd .. && ./configure && make && make install'.
This patch won't solve the problem for the packages that are
already logged, unless you manually edit the logs. Newly installed
packages should be logged properly.
I apologize for any inconvenience.

Paco <= 1.5 crashes when logging packages if the TMPDIR variable is set. The following patch:
fixes the bug. Just apply it before running 'make', with the following command from the main paco source directory:
# patch -p0 -i <path/to>paco-1.5-xopentmp.patch
