Easy Software-Installation with pkgsrc
This presentation contains information abouth the general problems encountered when installing and managing open source software, and introduces the pkgsrc system, which can be used to install software easily from source, independent of your operating system. Instead of knowing details like xmkmf, autoconf, libtool and Makefiles, a simple "make install" is enough to install a package (and all its dependencies).

The pkgsrc system will download the package's sources, which is then unpacked, patched, configured, compiled and installed for later querying and removing. The pkgsrc system is based on the NetBSD Packages Collection and was ported to a number of other operating systems like Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS X, Solaris, Irix and even MS Windows.
