That's where I come from: We want to manage the main userspace and
assorted libraries for some of those scientific software packages that
depend on lots of open source libraries with pkgsrc. This is on an
install that shall live 6 years minimum and be updated but at the same
time keep old versions of stuff around and working.

I hope that pkgsrc will serve us well in that function. And this might
also explain why I'm still fiddling with 2014Q3 while transitioning
from an older installation (it's the freshest there).

Alrighty then,
