It's pretty close. If you are in the GUI, one can use the Package
Installer panel from the Packages & Data menu. When using the dropdown
setting at the top of the panel you can choose to directly access
source packages in omegahat or r-forge by changing the "Other
repository" setting and unchecking the Binary Format Packages or one
can choose "Local source packages".
