I guess it's good to know that this simple approach works (this means
that libraries are mostly compatible, at least), but I was hoping for
something that could do some amount of dependency checking, offer
"uninstall", and the usual set of features you expect from a package
management system.

I guess something like `alien' for ipk/opk files, but `alien' doesn't
seem to understand ipk files.
