Oh, i know... portage-utils is great, i've used it for a long time. I
tried to build it on bionic, but portage-utils requires a few features
in glibc that don't exist in bionic (yet) - glob.h, etc. Then I ended
up just statically linking (from i686-pc-linux-gnu), but it still
wasn't working for, e.g. "qlist jamvm".
I guess what I'll be started with (after ~Tuesday) is rebuilding
everything from scratch using my overlay, adding any remaining patches
/ ironing out any bugs, and then making a public overlay.
Mike, where do you suggest I make the overlay? I was thinking to put
it up on sf.net since they've had git access for a while. That will do
until o.g.o picks up (if they do).
