uh, the article states, and I quote:

"Nexenta uses Debian's dpkg packaging system, and provides everything provided by Debian/Ubuntu environment"

According to Nexenta's wiki, it can use ubuntu's repos directly:

But I guess there is a four step process to port them, so I guess you do have to port them, but it looks extremely easy.
