Do you link everything?  How do you keep the paths straight?  OK, so if you
link everything - how do you know which links to delete if you uninstall a
package?

dpkg and rpm seem to involved and tied into Redhat's and Debian's design
philosophy. I'm looking at stow, and am wondering what else is out there to
keep track of what's installed, what versions, and to facilitate upgrading
the same. Something that I can go from the source and make a package would
be really nice. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
