So, few words about: pkgsrc is package management system (similar to FreeBSD ports and Gentoo packages) for Unix-like systems. Unlike mentioned pkgsrc is independent from operating system (packages can be built, installed and removed without harming so-called 'base-system'). pkgsrc is available... huh... simply everywhere. Under Minix, DragonflyBSD, Solaris and - of course - linux (see ). Security advisories for pkgsrc are provided by NetBSD security team. 1 - http://www.openwall.com/lists/owl-dev/2011/04/15/1 2 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pkgsrc -- Piotr 'aniou' Meyer
