I've been in e-mail limbo for a few days now, checking mail on my account because the machine on my desk I usually read mail
from is having NFS problems and won't let me log in. I haven't been
at school enough to get someone to look at it, so I'm compiling Mutt
and Fetchmail (and their dependencies) on a Sun machine to use
temporarily. It's taken an hour so far.

This whole compilation thing is too freakin' hard and complex. Thank
goodness for Encap, a university-developed, minimally invasive
packaging tool that I use to keep my own installed software organized,
but I'd like to be able to get source management too. So if I've got
Mutt installed for IRIX, I can just point to it and say “I want that
for Solaris too”.
