PackManUtil is a command line application for simplifying the build and management process for source packages. It was originally written for use with an x86_64, multi-lib Cross Linux from Scratch (CLFS) system. Since then, it has been extended to be used on ix86 and PPC CLFS systems. PackManUtil consists of several system-wide scripts to handle the brunt of the work. A separate build script is created for each package. PackManUtil comes with a system-wide configuration file, but variables can be overridden on a package-specific basis in the build script. This project is no longer being maintained.
