Hi Dimitry.

Depending on what exactly you're after, you may also be interested in
Nix and/or NixOS:

The Nix package manager builds any package in completely isolated
environments and makes sure all dependencies are properly specified.
It is easy to build and install one package in many configurations.
We have an infrastructure for building Cabal packages easily and
quite a number of packages from HackageDB in Nixpkgs (though not as
many as Arch). Nix can be used as a secondary package manager on
other Unix-like systems.
