I miss one thing: short discussion about BSD packages was at owl-dev[1],
not here... So, few words about:

pkgsrc is package management system (similar to FreeBSD ports and Gentoo
packages) for Unix-like systems. Unlike mentioned pkgsrc is independent
from operating system (packages can be built, installed and removed
without harming so-called 'base-system'). pkgsrc is available... huh...
simply everywhere. Under Minix, DragonflyBSD, Solaris and - of course - 
linux (see [2]). 

Security advisories for pkgsrc are provided by NetBSD security team.
