This seems to be a kludge. What if a package requires multiple source
files that are in different DISTDIRs? Does that work?

One further this with this. Which DISTDIR is used for live CVS ebuilds
(that checkout to $DISTDIR/cvs-src)

I believe 'A' is a list of all new SRC_URIs, and AA is a list of ALL
SRC_URIs. I may be wrong tho, that was from quite a while ago that I dug
into portage.

See this bug:

I think being able to have multiple DISTDIRS is a very good move, I was
wanting previously in Portage, but I never got around to coding it up.
