irixpkg 0.2.0b Released!

This version adds three new features:
1. A package can now have dependencies from freeware.sgi.com (such as fw_ncurses, fw_gcc, etc.)
2. A command line option has been added that makes irixpkg just download the package files, but not extract and install them.
3. Another command line option disables dependency checking.

irixpkg 0.1.8a Released!

This version adds a search function and two packages, so this perhaps makes it interesting to non-developers also. A global package configuration script has also been added. This script enables you to set which compiler you want to use to compile the packages. You can also set compiler options with it.
