one of the last times I had been to Paris I stumbled upon a group
of guys that were going to the pkgsrc conference, and joined them to
apparently pkgsrc "ports" are available for Interix, so perhaps some
of these guys may give you some guidance. if you bring portage to SFU,
you'd made me and many other people happy!!!

In C, you merely shoot yourself in the foot.
In C++, you accidentally create a dozen instances of yourself and
