*nix package manager

'toast' is a simple package manager for *nix. It automatically locates and downloads source code, determines how to compile it, installs each package in its own directory tree, and makes the resulting binaries available through an encap/GNU stow-like symlink tree. It also supports binary packages. It is often used to install and manage software in a non-root user's home directory. Since each package's installed files are stored separately, it's easy to quickly install, uninstall, upgrade, recompile, or temporarily disable different software packages or different versions of the same packages, even if they conflict with each other.
