I share the same opinion, but it's a solution with the "actual" portage
version that allow someone to make menuconfig from an ebuild so the user
can pre-configure the package without doiing most of the job by hand.

As make menuconfig is part of the build process and not a
post-configuration like pkg_config is, I sent another patch with a
src_preconfig (on gentoo-dev). See:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=gentoo-dev&m=112143274103251&w=2
For src_config, it wont be there to run interactive stuff, but for
splitting src_compile in src_config and src_compile as non interactive
task. src_preconfig is there for optional interactiveness between
src_unpack and src_compile.

Imo, src_preconfig is way better, but some people dont seem to share my
opinion so I found this hack which allow a user to configure it without
doiing all the job by hand.

Thank for your feed back.
