features an ncurses user interface that combines the user-friendliness
typically found in a GUI with the efficiency, light weight, and
portability of a text interface. It can function as a stand-alone
package manager or serve as a front-end to sbopkg, sbotools,
or custom package managers. Its main features include forward and
inverse dependency resolution, blacklisting, storing build options for
scripts, a menu bar, full mouse and keyboard support, and more.

Optional dependencies (see build options for more information):

psutil (for system tray notifier)
gksu, ktsuss (instead of kdesu to launch from the desktop)
