portage system for gentoo is very impressive in this regards, in that
gentoo have created a packaging system that is able to deal with parts of
software that needs to be downloaded manually. Such as sun's jdk, once

Of course, portage is not without its short comings with regards to
compiling everything should you choose to do so.
