I've been working on creating an ebuild this week and after working with it I
have some questions about how ebuilds work.
1. I assume that if I add no functions to an ebuild the process is A)
src_unpack, B) src_compile, C) src_install. In other words there are three
steps or functions that will be executed. If I desire I can make my own
functions for these but if I don't I get these three steps executed by emerge.
2. What is the best way to let the user know what's happening - for example,
"compiling xyz module now". I notice some builds use einfo to put out
messages about what you have to do after install (add user to groups, etc).
Are there specific ebuild functions I should use or are plain old echo
