'swpkg' is a collection of tools for building, installing, and maintaining software packages. It is based on a fairly simple philosophy intended to simplify the management of third party software and their inter-dependencies. Each software package is installed in a different directory, and symbolic links are used to populate common directories (typically /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/sbin, ..) which are then referenced by users (in their PATH and so on). The directories where the software actually lives are never referenced directly by users. For most software packages, setup and installation is as straight forward as if you were installing them directly in /usr/local.
