	Ok, then. When was make on your machine updated? (no fair
 peeking at /usr/doc/make/changelog.gz) How about a package you do not
 have installed? when was angband updated? (I know the version number,
 but how old is version 282? what about version 194?)

	I think that is what he wanted in the Packages file.

	I confess to wanting to know this kind of information, too,
 from time to time.
