Why not use the package manager?  It's designed to handle those details 
for you.  Not only that, but it ensures that everything that package 
needs to run properly (dependencies) are also installed.



Wulf Credo:
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
