I haven't been following it closely of late, so, now with this release, and the umpteen tarballs to download, untar, configure with whatever proper options are necessary, make, make install (and all in whatever proper order) has anyone come up with a decent script that does at least some of this for you?

(yes, as someone who does software packaging at my work, going from the old edit one or two files, and running make World on the whole thing, to the new modular method with 287 separate components, doesn't seem to make my job easier...)
