Subject description: to easily keep track of each program we compile and install

Using GNU Stow to manage programs installed from source.

Sometimes we have to install programs from source: maybe they are not available through standard channels, or maybe we want a specific version of a software. GNU stow is a very nice symlinks factory program which helps us a lot by keeping files organized in a very clean and easy to maintain way.
