Ummm hello

back to the discussion here which was useful package management
things for alfs....

neither of the two ideas (jesse's find or installchecker) are going to 
work with alfs directly.... We are going to have to hack them, but 
that is my question I guess. Comparing find vs install which one produces
the best info that we can capture, etc.?

find has lots of useful info it seems and is easy to have uninstall
find takes a while though

installchecker is useful ???
installchecker has crappy output and wierd uninstall things
