 As suggested by Scott on the mailing list, i open this ticket to submit a
 GUI app to install local hpkg files:

 I made this little and simple app to install local HPKG files, which is
 based on TrackerScript:
 https://github.com/HaikuArchives/TrackerScript (which is released under
 MIT license).
 Differently from pkgman, this is a GUI app.

 So, If core developers think that would be useful improve and/or include
 this app in Haiku, i attach a zip archive to this ticket, an archive which
 contain the HPKG file for the installer (move under
 /boot/home/config/packages), and the modified source code (for now is only
 possible build this app with gcc2 compiler, but this app properly works
 under gcc2h Haiku and should also work in gcc4h).

 I also guess that this app could be placed under system (to be treated as
 system apps) by replacing reference, in the source code,
