Thanks to the sbopkg team.
Thanks from me too. I've discovered the wonder of Mauro Giachero's queuefiles as I had to build Openerp client and server which have a ton of dependencies. The queuefiles made it a breeze. As I say, I keep finding more abilities of sbopkg - top marks to the developers. I originally thought sbopkg was solely developed by Chess Griffin but looking at the man pages I see Chess Griffin, Mauro Giachero and slakmagik - the OP. So thanks to all.
