spftools is a set of utilities for maintaining foreign packages under
These tools let you install foreign packages—those that are not
designed for installation under
/package, much as you would do with
apt, etc., for their respective package formats.
This package is discussed on the spf list. New releases are announced on the prjware-announce list.
spftools is devoid of warranty and is distributed under the GNU General Public License, version 2. But that doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea for you to distribute modified versions. I'd like to know if you plan to do that.
Older versions are published for historical interest.
slashpackage is a good thing. You can
read more about it
here. If you don't already have
/package, create it (on any
filesystem you like, as long as it's accessible by the name
# mkdir -p /usr/local/package # ln -s /usr/local/package / # chmod +t /package/.
# sp-install spftools-VERSION.tar.bz2
Or, if you like to do things manually, unpack the tarball and run
# cd /package # bunzip2 < /path/to/spftools-VERSION.tar.bz2 | > tar -xpf - # cd admin/spftools-VERSION # package/install
