This is actually a common problem for scientific computing
departments that have to provide numerous different versions 
of applications to serve the demands of a large number of users
maybe even in heterogeneous environments.

For these scenarios it is a very well established approach to use
some sort of software management system independently from the
distribution. Environment modules [1] are probably one of the
most commonly used in computing departments.
