Yes, I am invoking something like the code below my sig.

-- kjh

Example:  what do I need for postgis ?

### cut  here ###

for Dep in $(hoorex -r -m $Pkg)

   GotIt="$(ls -1 /var/log/packages/$Dep-[0-9]* 2>/dev/null)"

   if [ "$GotIt" != "" ]
      echo "$Dep is already installed as $(basename $GotIt)"

   Lst="$Lst $Dep"

   echo "you'll need to build and install $Dep"

   # sh get-SBo-pkg $Dep    # this script copies the SBo Directory to my
working Directory and downloads files and checks md5sums


[ "$Lst" != "" ] && echo "now go build and intstall $Lst"

### cut there ###

This is what I see today for postgis:

geos is already installed as geos-3.7.0-x86_64-1_SBo
proj is already installed as proj-5.1.0-x86_64-2_SBo
postgresql is already installed as postgresql-9.6.10-x86_64-1_SBo_kjh
gdal is already installed as gdal-2.3.1-x86_64-1_SBo_kjh
postgis is already installed as postgis-2.4.5-x86_64-1_SBo
