Ubuntu hardy (current): 10.0 (http://packages.ubuntu.com)
Ubuntu intrepid (next): 10.3 (http://packages.ubuntu.com)
Debian unstable:	10.3 (http://packages.dbian.com)
Fedora 8:		10.0 (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/)

For the rest I can't figure out how to get the information. I suspect we
can standardise on things around six month old. Debian unstable tracks
closely upstream, Ubuntu and Fedora have a release cycle of 6 months, I
don't know about SUSE, but I think it is similar, and macports, fink, or
Gentoo trac closely upstream.
