sourceinstaller

http://www.gnu.org/software/sourceinstall
'GNU Source Installer' offers a graphical interface to source package configuration, installation, tracking and removal. It also performs installed packages consistency checks and uninstallation crosschecks considering simple file dependancy between packages. It is intended for users, not developers: it has nothing to do with package creation. The user installs 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.
