Seems as though AIX & FreeMiNT bump into this issue in a few ebuilds.

I've just bumped into it again with sys-libs/cracklib &
sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs and sys-fs/e2fsprogs.

Is it worthwhile creating a new function in the eclass directory that
deals with these issues..

Taking sys-libs/cracklib for example, we currently have this....

        # move shared libs to /
        dodir /$(get_libdir)
        mv "${D}"/usr/$(get_libdir)/*.so* "${D}"/$(get_libdir)/ || die
"could
not move shared"

We could add (or something equivalent to with a bit of extra
thinking)....

move_shlibs() {
        # move shared libs to /
        [[ $(get_libname) == ".irrelevant" ]] && return
        dodir /$(get_libdir)
        mv "${D}"/usr/$(get_libdir)/*.so* "${D}"/$(get_libdir)/ || die
"could
not move shared"
}

and nicely change the ebuild to...

        move_shlibs

It'd really help clean up that nasty "mv" commandline I keep seeing
everywhere in ebuilds.

Comments ?

Alan.
