I think we could benefit from using NetBSD's 'pkgsrc'
for unix software management. (and unix software only)
It's unix-centric, of course, but it's far from NetBSD-only.

Darwin, DragonFly BSD, FreeBSD, Interix (Windows), 
IRIX, Linux, OpenBSD, Solaris and Tru64 are all supported.

"Using pkgsrc on systems other than NetBSD"

The pkgsrc guide:

Wouldn't this help us getting up-to-date unix applications
and libraries more frequently, managing dependencies
somewhat, and perhaps keeping unix software somewhat
separate from the core Haiku system?
