GNU-Darwin packages for GNU/Linux

proclus writes: "
GNU-Darwin

has built some experimental BSD-style packages for GNU/Linux, and we are almost ready to build a large package collection. These packages are intended for use with the
GNU/Linux User Tarball.
They are useful now, but there is some room for improvement. Use zmore to view the format. Similar developments will be available for Tru64 soon. Send us a
Sun!

cclient-0106191041.tgz
dillo-0.6.4.tgz
gettext-0.10.35.tgz
jpeg-6b.tgz
libtool-1.3.4_2.tgz
pkgconfig-0.8.0.tgz
png-1.2.0.tgz
postilion-0.9.3c.tgz
py-pmw-0.8.5.tgz
pymol-0_82.tgz
python-2.2.1.tgz

GNU-Darwin package production continues apace and has been fully automated. As
a result, this ports system has produced several thousand packages
for both the

ppc

and

x86

platforms.

In order to further accelerate the development and refinement of our existing package
collection, we have brought

NetBSD pkgsrc

and other tools to GNU-Darwin.
The NetBSD team
has already made their system compatible with a wide variety of architectures,
including GNU/Linux, SunOS, and Darwin. We have enhanced the system for
interoperability with our existing ports and package tools, so that the two
systems can co-exist. As a result, improvements which derive from NetBSD can be
rapidly deployed to our users using their existing package system.

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/gnu -darwin/pkgsrc/
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/gnu -darwin/ports/
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/gnu -darwin/src/

Together these advancements demonstrate our ability to deploy on a wide
range of platforms, and it forms the basis for a software distribution system
that is flexible, transparent, and largely platform independent, so that
more people can be conveniently introduced to the benefits of software freedom.
