Freshmeat page:


GNU Stow is a program for managing the installation of software packages, keeping them separate (/usr/local/stow/emacs vs. /usr/local/stow/perl, for example) while making them appear to be installed in the same place (/usr/local). Stow is a Perl script which should run correctly under Perl 4 and Perl 5. You must install Perl before running Stow. Stow was inspired by Carnegie Mellon's Depot program, but is substantially simpler.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
