Get rid of stowaway packages with GNU Stow

These comments are absurd. Systems like stow are more general than package managers and are certainly valuable. I can't imagine never installing an autoconf package. apt-get install ion3, oh wait, it's not in Ubuntu or Debian's repo currently. Writing a deb pkg for it isn't a worthwhile endeavor for those of us that use source regularly.
