OpenPKG 2.5 available for 19 Unix platforms

Ralf S. Engelschall writes "The OpenPKG project released
version 2.5
of their unique RPM-based cross-platform multi-instance
Unix software packaging facility. OpenPKG 2.5 consists of 579 selected
(from a pool of over 900) packages which include latest versions of
all popular Unix server software. All software is carefully packaged
for easy deployment on 19 different Unix platforms, including FreeBSD
4.11/5.4/6.0/7.0, NetBSD 2.0.2, Debian GNU/Linux 3.1, Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4, Fedora Core 4, SUSE Linux 9.3/10.0, Mandriva Linux 10.2 and
Sun Solaris 8/9/10. The major technical efforts for this release were
spent on migrating to the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) version 4.0,
further improving the Solaris 10 support and adding full support for
the new FreeBSD 6.0 and SUSE 10.0 platforms."
