We're currently using pkgsrc (pkgsrc.org). There's been some
conversations about using a sort of filesystem overlay, where each package
gets its own 'layer' that has all the dependent programs for it installed
only in that layer, so that dependency problems go away. There's a good
amount of filesystem work (in progress) that has to happen first. Check
