I would rather use packages everywhere.  Unfortunately, it isn't the end

If you can't compile something...then you have a real problem.

Xymon in particular has no packages I'm aware.  I wrote that step by step
guide so that everyone that has the ability to read and the slightly PC
knowledge can get a Xymon server running.
