DSWIM is a powerful informational tool for Debian's packaging system. Designed with an integrated approach it combines the functionality found in several other programs and scripts. This provides users with a centralized approach for querying the installation, allowing programmers the liberty of writing smaller and simpler code.

toast is a simple package manager for Unix. It
automatically locates and downloads source code,
determines how to compile it, installs each
package in its own directory tree, and makes the
resulting binaries available through an encap/GNU
stow-like symlink tree. It also supports binary
packages. It is often used to install and manage
software in a non-root user's home directory.

0release is a program to generate source and binary releases automatically. With minimal configuration, 0release will generate a source tarball release candidate, build it to create a binary archive, upload them to your Web server, check the uploads, and tag the release in GIT and update the version number. It can run unit-tests and custom actions, such as building documentation, etc. For Zero Install users, it can also upload a signed XML metadata file about the release, allowing these users to upgrade automatically. Releases are signed with your GPG key.

With 'nixstaller' you can easily make installers
for Unix-like systems. Some of the project goals:
support for many different platforms, support for
different (optional) frontends used by the
installer (currently FLTK, ncurses, GTK 2, and Qt
are planned), ease of use for the install creator
and the end user, different ways of installing
(extract files to a location, compile software on
the user's system, and maybe even integration for
the package manager running on the user's system).
Nixstaller can be fully translated and is
programmed in C++ and sh.

Alien converts between the rpm, deb, Stampede slp, and Slackware tgz file formats. If you want to use a package from another distribution than the one you have installed on your system, you can use alien to convert it to your preferred package format and install it.
lcab (formerly known as Cablinux) makes a Microsoft cabinet file from a set of input files.
bpkg is a utility that tries to simplify the
process of trying out new programs from source.
For most packages, this can be as simple as "bpkg
<url or tarball>". bpkg will download,
extract, configure, compile, install, generate a
package in your system's native format, and
finally integrate that package into your system's
packaging system so that you can remove it
cleanly. It has auto-detection for Arch Linux,
Slackware, Red Hat, Gentoo, and SuSE (though not
all packaging back-ends are complete). bpkg is not
intended as a replacement for normal packaging
DeltaRPM is a tool that generates RPMs that
contains the difference between an old and a new
version of an RPM. This makes it possible to
recreate the new RPM from the deltarpm and the old
one. You don't have to have a copy of the old RPM,
as it can also work with installed RPMs. The
package also contains tools for creating and
applying delta ISOs.
Graft provides a mechanism for managing multiple packages under a single directory hierarchy. It was inspired by both Depot (from Carnegie Mellon University) and Stow (by Bob Glickstein). Packages are installed in self-contained directory trees and symbolic links from a common area are made to the package files.

epkg is a package manager which uses the Encap Package Management System, a method for flexibly handling installation and management of third-party software on a Unix system. Encap places each package in its own subdirectory, then automatically manages symlinks to their appropriate places in /usr/local. The Encap package format includes features like postinstall scripts and prerequisite checking. Other features include builtin tar/gzip extraction, optional builtin FTP and HTTP support, transaction logging, and the ability to automatically upgrade a package to the latest version.

Emerde is a port of Gentoo's portage system that
installs, removes, updates, and maintains your
system rapidly and easily. On Slackware, it
cooperates with the package database and allows
you to install .tgz files directly using
NexentaStor is a unified storage solution that installs on standard hardware and provides enterprise class storage at a fraction of the cost of legacy, proprietary storage solutions. NexentaStor is particularly well suited for virtualized environments thanks to the ability of NexentaStor to eliminate duplication of primary data storage, to manage the storage for virtual environments from one interface, and to leverage SSDs to address the random I/O and boot storm issues with virtual environments.

pkt is a universal XML packet archiver. It can manipulate files for
backing up documents, transferring them across networks, emailing them,
and sharing them by other means (p2p etc). It uses plugin filters to
do the job and handles virtually any format available if there is a
plugin for it. It handles encryption, compression, conversion, parity
checking, decryption, decoding, repairing, rebuilding, and other tasks
using a universal file format (XML-based). By default, all pkt output is
in 7-bit ASCII which is UTF encoded and is compatible with XML parsers.
pkt files can be disassembled, reassembled, and repaired by hand if
necessary. pkt also supports the use of 8-bit compressed XML packets for
its archives using one of several compression algorithms. In general,
pkt will try to use the best algorithms available.

CPANPLUS::Dist::Slackware creates Slackware-compatible packages from Perl modules available at the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN).
stowES (stow Enhancement Script) is a Perl script which tries to ease the use of the "stow" packaging program and software which can be compiled and installed with autoconf. It automates the compilation and installation of software packages and provides some useful functions to maintain your stow packages (e.g., list packages, check packages for integrity, etc.).
