Binary package “xstow” in ubuntu lucid
An extended replacement of GNU Stow written in C++
XStow (like GNU Stow) is a program for managing the installation of
software packages, keeping them separate (/usr/local/
to be installed in the same place (/usr/local).
The extended features include: creation of symlinks with absolute
path names, traversal link support (create a link from
/usr/share/man to /usr/man), multiple stow directories support,
shell pattern matching, regular expressions support, and global
settings via configuration files.
