Package Management

If you have lot of software packages with different versions or if your user should be given control of whatever he wish to install be installed, then look at this package called GNU Stow.

GNU Stow is a program for managing the installation of software packages, keeping them separate (/usr/local/stow/emacs vs. /usr/local/stow/perl , for example) while making them appear to be installed in the same place (/usr/local).

Should have a look at it.
