Things that I find useful to have on a serious scientific machine:

Local Software Configuration

I'm running the Red Hat Linux distribution. Takes a lot of hassle out of upgrading and maintaining your system. The biggest drawback is that they have all sorts of crazy nonstandard stuff (for example, the "logrotate" package) that you have to uninstall after each upgrade, if you want your machine to remain a "normal" Linux system. Some people probably don't care, but I don't like, e.g., the system deleting my log files behind my back.
Handy software to have around:
