You can use the package.provided file. Normally this would be in your portage profile, but I believe you can also just create the file under /etc/portage . The syntax is the same as the other package.* files. More information at: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=3&chap=5 -- gentoo-admin@g.o mailing list
