GNU Source Installer
Source-Install was a source package manager for Unix-likes. The tool comes with a graphical interface to source package configuration, installation, tracking and removal. It also performs installed packages consistency checks and uninstallation crosschecks considering simple file dependency between packages. It was intended for users, not developers: it has nothing to do with package creation. Users had to install new source packages by browsing the web, downloading a source package (in .tar.gz or other formats), and then feeding it to the source installer.
